A junior doctor has shared her experience working in Teesside as part of a regional campaign to highlight the benefits of living and working in the area.
Alisha Gupta is a doctor in training working in the emergency assessment unit at the University Hospital of North Tees as part of her first foundation year.
Alisha, who grew up in Kent, made the decision to train in the north east to help her gain more research placement experience.
She said: “I am learning so much here in a challenging environment where I have been able to put what I’ve learned into real life practice, helping acute patients.
“I also really enjoy living in the area – there’s the amazing Northumberland coastline, the North Yorkshire Moors and the Lake District is near too.
“I am living near to North Tees and still learning so much about the area.
“I am looking forward to seeing where my training takes me.”
The NHS Find Your Place in the North East and North Cumbria have recorded a video, profiling Alisha’s experience so far – set to be released in the coming weeks.
It will be part of a series of case studies highlighting doctors in training in a wide variety of placements in health organisations across the region.
