St Richard’s Hospital is a busy DGH where trainees will get a good grounding in practical microbiology. All trainees will spend time on the benches, the length of time depends on previous experience. There are daily ward rounds in ITU, for bacteraemias and hot cases. There is a weekly medical grand round which trainees are encouraged to attend, and can present if they wish. There are also MDTs in haematology, orthopaedic infections, diabetic foot infection and neonatal infections.
