Doctors on Rotation at Somerset Partnership

Each year we welcome Core Trainees, Foundation Doctors, Speciality Trainees and GP Trainee doctors to the Trust who are completing medical training programmes. They spend their time with the Trust working on our Psychiatric Wards, alongside Consultants. They will also take an active part in the on-call out of hours rota.

Trainees rotate in February, April, August and December each year.

We have a supportive working environment and provide a number of support services which all staff can access.

If you would like further information about the rotations please contact our Medical Enquiries team at the following email address: Medical.Enquiries@sompar.nhs.uk

Dental

All dentists are registered with the General Dental Council. From recently qualified to experienced, the dentists we employ are committed to quality care for the groups we treat. They bring to their posts a variety of qualifications, depending on their interests and specialty. The dentist provides the prescriptions for the work of the therapist, hygienist and nurse.

Dental Nurses

Each dental nurse is registered with the General Dental Council. Their role is to assist the dentist in carrying out dental procedures, act as a legal chaperone, carry out cross infection and sterilisation and support and help the patient.

Many of our dental nurses have extra qualifications, allowing them to take x-ray pictures at the dentist’s request, provide dental health education, and assist in certain sedation and oral surgery sessions.
