Dr Lucy Coward, Director of Medical Education received a letter from the Royal London Hospital Orthopaedic and Trauma Society, announcing that Southend Hospital has been voted the 2018 Training Hospital of the Year.

Dr Coward said: "This is a wonderful achievement by the Trauma and Orthopaedics team and I wanted to congratulate and thank you personally for your contribution to the excellent teamwork that has made this possible.

"We all recognise that getting the balance between service delivery and training opportunities can be a real challenge but it is clearly one that the Orthopaedic Department have mastered!
