Yorkshire and Humber is a large geographical area of around 5,950 sq miles (15420 km2). To avoid unecessary travelling the School of Emergency Medicine has divided training into 3 distinct regions (East/West/South). All trainees will get exposure to working in a major trauma centre, and a variety of rural and urban trauma units.
The eastern region consists of placements in Hull (Adult Major trauma Centre), York, Harrogate, Scunthorpe, Grimsby, and Scarborough.
The southern region consists of placements at the Northern General Hospital, Sheffield (Adult Major Trauma Centre), Sheffield Children's Hospital (Paediatric Major Trauma Centre), Rotherham, Barnsley, and Doncaster.
The western region consists of placements at Leeds Teaching Hospitals (Adult and Paediatric Major Trauma Centre at Leeds General Infirmary and St James's hospital), Bradford, Calderdale (Halifax and Huddersfield), Mid Yorkshire Hospitals (Pinderfields, Dewsbury and Pontefract), and Airedale.
