2gether NHS trust logo

We employ more than 2,500 members of staff (including bank staff) and serve a combined population of more than 950,000, over nearly 1,900 square miles. Last year (2017/18) we delivered services to more than 46,000 individuals and support to their carers and families. We also work in partnership with a wide range of commissioners, collaborators and our colleagues across the health and social care community to enhance the support available for people with mental health conditions and learning disabilities, as well as tackling inequality and stigma. We are a forward thinking Trust, who put service users and carers at the heart of everything we do. Our primary objectives are continually improving the quality of services, improving engagement and ensuring the sustainability of our Trust and the services we provide. 

The Trust’s most recent CQC assessment has rated the Trust as “Good” overall, with a number of services, particularly inpatient services, recognised as “Outstanding”.






Gloucestershire and Herefordshire

We develop and train our medical staff in a supportive environment with plentiful opportunities for CPD and first class supervision from our well respected, experienced and skilled clinical leaders. As an employer, we offer various benefits to staff, including relocation allowance, flexible working and childcare vouchers. 

2gether has a long tradition of providing excellent training and all of our educational and clinical supervisors are trained to GMC standards.

We hold quarterly Junior Doctors Forums in both Gloucestershire and Herefordshire which are chaired by either the Medical Director or the Director of Medical Education with the Guardian of Safe Working and Medical Staffing Officer in attendance. The Postgraduate Tutors meet with the trainees at least twice, once at the start of their posts and again at the end to ensure excellent training standards are maintained. We provide excellent pastoral care and many of our Core Trainees have chosen to do their Advanced Training with us and have gone on to become Consultants locally. 

We will also offer you opportunities to shadow our senior management team so that you can get a better understanding of management and how it aligns to support outstanding service delivery. One of our strengths is that we encourage and enable trainees to not only participate but also lead service development and change.

If you do elect to train at 2gether, our aim is to give you a first class training experience, as we want to think you will not want to leave us and will want to join our substantive consultant body, as many have to date, and contribute to our continued future success and the continuous improving innovative services we provide for the people of Gloucestershire and Herefordshire.

Placements in Birmingham Community Foundation Trust will show students the wide diversity of community services that are available for the local population. Students will see we  provide health care locally to either avoid an acute admission, or substantially shorten it.  

Students will experience integrated multi-disciplinary care, learning both the clinical medicine related to the illnesses they see, but also the communication and joined up working necessary to provide an appropriate package of care around a fragile elderly person, or an adult who has experienced complex neurological trauma. They will be able to appreciate the role of different therapists along with joint working and leadership within a team. They will learn how chronic conditions can be managed successfully in the community and how to enable patients to take control of their own illnesses. They will not only acquire basic medical knowledge, but the vital skills of communication, multi-disciplinary working and patient empowerment.
