  • 5. The Trust has developed an at night wireless communication system between ward and medical staff via a night co-ordinator. This allows on-call clinicians receiving ward requests for help to prioritise calls, using supplied clinical observations, through a PDA, gives access to protocols on patient management and also allows data collection on patient and ward activity and response times to seeing patients and completing tasks. This system has been awarded the prestigious HSJ Award for e-technology and has also won a BT award. In January 2006 the Trust achieved Practice Plus status for work on Improving Working Lives. This is an important recognition for commitment to good working practices and, as equally important, how staff find working in the Trust.

A full programme of postgraduate educational meetings is held on this site. Support services on this site include haematology, chemical pathology, histopathology, microbiology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy.

EDUCATION, TEACHING AND RESEARCH The modern Academic Centre at The James Cook University Hospital is housed within two linked buildings. They contain two large lecture theatres, which have audio-visual links. There are many seminar rooms of varying sizes, which are used for teaching, demonstrations, lectures and conferences. There is a new library which is well equipped with most of the general and specialist journals relevant to the Trust’s clinical activity. There is a large IT suite of over 40 stations within the library complex. The Academic Centre also houses the Clinical Trials Unit which has recently been extended with links to the unit at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.

  • 8. As part of the national expansion of medical student numbers, the Universities of Newcastle and Durham have formed a partnership increasing the undergraduate intake to 340 students as from September 2002. The first two years of the curriculum are being taught at the Queen’s Campus of the University of Durham in Stockton as well as the Medical School in Newcastle. Currently it is planned that 102 students will be based in Stockton and 245 in Newcastle including 25 in the accelerated programme. At the end of year 2 the entire cohort of students will be divided up for their third year between base units of acute and community trusts and PCTs around the Northern Region. South Tees has been designated the lead trust for the Teesside Unit which currently comprises Bishop Auckland and Darlington, North Tees and Hartlepool, as well as South Tees and the corresponding Mental Health Trusts of Tees, Wear and Esk Valley and South Durham and the associated PCTs. In order to accommodate these medical students, a new purpose-built clinical Academic Centre, including a teaching unit, has recently been completed at The James Cook University Hospital. There are active plans to further develop both teaching and research within the Trust including the appointment of a new Chair in Rheumatology (Newcastle) and Cardiology (Durham). Research is actively encouraged. The Trust employs several visiting Professors (Orthopaedics (2), Anaesthetics (2), Academic Emergency Medicine (1), Paediatrics (1), Medicine (1), Surgery (1) and Maxillofacial Surgery (1). The Sub-Dean of the Medical School (Professor Bilous) is also based at JCUH. As a result of these activities the Trust was designated a University Hospital in 2002. JUNIOR DOCTORS' HOURS AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EUROPEAN WORKING TIME DIRECTIVE The region and Trust are committed to these nationally agreed initiatives.

It is expected that consultant staff will contribute to the education supervision, appraisal and assessment of junior medical staff and support the on call arrangements that exist in their Directorate.
