Undergraduate Education in Lancashire Care

Feedback 2015-16:

Lancashire Care Foundation Trust provides mental health placements for medical students from Manchester, Lancaster and Liverpool Medical Schools).  Students are posted to 5 main sites within the Trust: Liverpool students are posted to West LCFT (Blackpool and Ormskirk), Lancaster Students are posted to North LCFT (Lancaster), Manchester Medical School students are posted to Central and East LCFT (Preston, Chorley, Burnley and Blackburn).  

Manchester students are posted for their Psychiatry placements in the 4th year of their course.  Feedback is via Quality Assurance meetings that occur at the end of each placement involving the Acute Trust Education Dept, LCFT and Manchester Medical School.

Lancaster students are posted for their Psychiatry placements in the 3rd and 4th years of their course. The feedback is done directly to the Medical School and then copies collated and sent to LCFT.

Liverpool students are posted during the 4th year of their course to LCFT placements in Blackpool and Ormskirk. The feedback is sent to the Medical School and Blackpool Victoria Hospital Undergraduate Department.

Feedback has been collated to fit a mark out of 10 system. This is used by Liverpool and loosely by Lancaster Medical Schools. Manchester awards marks from 5, but for the purpose of the feedback the scores have been doubled, so the same graphs and data can be used for all 3 medical schools –though in some cases the feedback is about direct teaching sessions and in others the quality of the placement overall.
