Foundation Programme Director

Dr Simon Burns, Foundation Programme Director:

"I am the foundation programme director (FPD) for Mid-Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This means that I am responsible for ensuring that the foundation doctors in the trust receive the appropriate supervision and training that they require. There is also a significant pastoral element to my work. I see my role as acting as a guide in helping the foundation doctors navigate the first two years of their careers ; helping them see what is important and what they need to prioritise. My clinical background is paediatrics and I have been a consultant in that speciality since 2004. Although I  have only been in post as FPD since July 2015 I have a lot of experience of supervising foundation doctors (and other trainees) working in the paediatric department. "
