Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust has renewed an agreement recognising the excellence of its teaching and placements with the University of Leeds.
The Trust re-signed The Associated Teaching Trust Agreement with the University’s School of Medicine at a specially-convened ceremony.
It confers the prestigious status to the Trust for the next five years that will allow medical students to get placements with specialist teams during their training.
Executive Medical Director Dr Amanda Thomas said it reflected the Trust’s strong commitment to education and learning.
Dr Thomas said: “We are very proud to have renewed the Associated Teaching Trust Agreement for the next five years. It is a fantastic achievement.
“We are committed to ensuring the next crop of healthcare professionals have the right tools available to them.
“Our dedication to education and training allows us to continue to provide the best possible care in every community.”
Chief Executive Thea Stein signed the agreement alongside Professor Trudie Roberts, Director of the University of Leeds Institute of Medical Education (LIME).
Professor Paul Stewart, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine & Health, was also present as the agreement was formalised and praised the relationship between the University and Trust.
He added: “The Trust provides excellent placements for our medical students in paediatrics, gynaecology and sexual health.
“We are delighted to renew this Agreement with the Trust and look forward to strengthening our relationship with our colleagues.”
