I moved to the area because I wanted an improved work life balance, and I’ve definitely found that here. I’ve never worked somewhere quite like this, it definitely has a special place in my heart.

Cumbria is a unique and rewarding place to work and live. From my own experience as a speciality trainee at CPFT I have received brilliant training opportunities, ranging from clinical to management to research. I have always had excellent supervision and help with developing my career in a way that reflects both my training needs and my own clinical and non-clinical interests.

Sam Dearman, Director of Medical Education

With a real culture of learning and improvement, we aim to support our trainees to be the best doctor they can be. In my view North Cumbria has it all - a work-life balance with the opportunity to live in an area of outstanding natural beauty and easy access to town and city life too.
