A hospital department dealing with bones and muscle problems has been named as top hospital department for training new medical staff.
The Queen’s Hospital orthopaedic department, Rom Valley Way, Romford, won the 2014 Training Hospital of the Year Award for their work teaching trainees.
The Royal London Trauma and Orthopaedic Society award comes after the hospital excelled in the “what orthopaedic trainees want” category.
Queen’s trainers John Hambridge and Krishna Vemulapalli were also nominated for individual accolades in the Regional Trainers of the Year for London category.
Orthopaedic surgeon Ali Al-Sabti said: “I am thrilled that Queen’s Orthopaedic Department has won this award. It is a testament to the quality of our department and the standard of the teaching experience we offer.
He added: “Our staff work hard to ensure that the quality of teaching is second to none and it is great that this hard work has been recognised.”
