Trainee Anaesthetist awarded top prize in the country

Aaron D'Sa, Registrar Anaesthetist

The Theatres department at Peterborough City Hospital were thrilled to hear that one of their trainee Anaesthetists has been awarded the top prize in the country from the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

Dr Aaron D’Sa has been working as a Trust Registrar in the Anaesthetic Department for two years and sat his exams in January 2017 to get into higher specialist Anaesthetic Training.

After scoring top marks in every assessment, Dr D’Sa was contacted by the Royal College of Anaesthetists and invited to the Diplomates Ceremony in Westminster on the 5 May, where he was awarded the Nuffield Medal for his performance in the primary FRCA examination.

Dr D’Sa, said: “I have received a tremendous amount of support from everyone in the department and could not have achieved the award without them. I am particularly grateful to Dr Emma Chan and Dr Jeremy Lermitte for organising a mock exam, and to all of the Consultant Anaesthetists for their assistance with viva practice and exam advice.”

Dr Kanchan Rege, Medical Director for North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, said: “I would like to say a huge congratulations to Dr D’Sa for achieving this award. This is the second time that one of our trainee Anaesthetists has achieved this accolade which illustrates just how much the department helps individuals in their learning and development. I wish him every success in his next stage of training.”
