Published on: 7 May 2019

The Trust’s Medical Education team held its inaugural Trainee Awards Ceremony on 3 May, recognising outstanding Junior awards-group-picture-crop.jpgDoctors. 

The awards were split into grades for Foundation Year, General Practice Specialty Training, Higher Specialty Training and Core Trainee. In each case the award was won by the trainee who had best demonstrated through clinical performance and practice that they had attained a level of achievement over and above that expected for their grade.

Chief Executive Ifti Majid spoke about the role of Junior Doctors in the Trust and psychiatry recruitment, and presented the awards with Dr Abbas Ramji, Dr Mike Parker and Dr Nitesh Painuly.

The award winners were: 

Higher Specialty Training: Dr Madiha Lotfy

awards-lofty-picture-crop.jpgDr Lotfy shows high commitment as a trainee. She is a hard worker and enthusiastic and always shows empathy and commitment for patients and relatives.

She always goes the extra mile to ensure she gains a corroborative history and is a clear communicator with patients, carers and relatives.

Core Trainee: Dr Phoebe Owen

awards-owen-picture-crop.jpgI was particularly impressed with Dr Owen’s ability remain unflappable and work in a methodical manner with little supervision under pressure. As Forensic Psychiatrists, we regularly have to condense vast amount of information into a concise document. 

Dr Owen was especially talented in this regard, which made her an absolute joy to work with. One of her tribunal reports received a commendation from a senior Crown Court Judge.

Core Trainee: Dr Emma McPhail 

awards-mcphail-picture-crop.jpgAs a clinician Dr McPhail has very good skills and a good knowledge base. She is a very proactive and quick learner and she performs better than expected in most of her assessments.

The interactions with patients and the families observed by me have been of a very good standard and of particular note is her ability to modulate her communication to match the developmental stage of the child/young person.

General Practice Specialty Training: Dr Brian Richards

Dr Richards is very much a team player who has fitted in well to the clinical team.  He has demonstrated himself to be approachable and reliable.  He has provided a lot of support to his other medical colleagues on the ward. 

Having spoken to his direct clinical supervisor I can confirm my own observations of his excellent clinical skills are accurate as she too has reported that he is an excellent doctor.

Foundation Year: Dr Kady Garib

I have been impressed by Dr Garib’s communication skills at such an early stage of her career, especially observing her interactions with patients with advanced dementia.

It has been a pleasure to supervise her. She is enthusiastic and always positive and a really important member of the team. She is very supportive to all colleagues, myself included, demonstrating that leadership can come from all levels of doctor.
