Trainees may work at either site and they have their own room and terminal on our EMIS Web system. They have two tutorials per week and post-surgery debriefs as well as protected afternoon for personal study. We share one of our tutorials with Staithe Surgery, Stalham so that both trainees bring ideas along with a larger pool of educators. Day release takes place at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital all day on alternate Wednesdays. There is also a half-day off for recreation.
