Regional training awards recognition for Princess Alexandra Hospital's trauma and orthopaedics department
The trauma and orthopaedics department of the Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) has been recognised for its training excellence.
The team was awarded second place in the East of England Trauma and Orthopaedic Training Programme's Trainee Led Training Hospital of the Year Awards for the third year running.
Satish Kutty, consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon, was named Regional Trainer of the Year. This follows the award to him of the Austrian-Swiss-German (ASG) Fellowship for 2020, an honour from the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA), which selects one surgeon every two years.
The latest successes for the department follow Jehangir Mahaluxmivala, a consultant orthopaedic surgeon, being named Trainer of the Year 2020 by the Royal London Rotation for Trauma and Orthopaedics.
Mr Kutty said: "It is absolutely fantastic that the department has been given this prestigious recognition. I am also humbled to have received the Trainer of the Year Award for the region and the ASG Fellowship. We are all dedicated to supporting and developing the orthopaedic surgeons of the future."
Dr Fay Gilder, medical director at PAHT, added: "I am delighted to see the trauma and orthopaedics department acknowledged for the amazing training they offer. High-quality training is vital for the future of the NHS. We are extremely proud of the programme. Congratulations to Satish and to all of the department."
