We are again offering a six month Fellowship in Advanced Regional  Anaesthesia Training with a proposed start date of August 2019.  The postholder would spend 6 months at Queen’s Hospital Burton (with Burton facilitating day release to Oswestry on an honorary contract) and would be expected to complete other advanced general modules during this Fellowship.  Only Post Fellowship trainees in ST6 or ST7 are eligible to apply for the fellowship as it is important to get Advanced Regional modules signed off, which the RCoA prohibits in ST5.
