Dr Nick Matthews has just completed his final year of speciality training at North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust and will soon be starting a post as a consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology at City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust.
He said: “I have worked at North Tees over three separate periods and staff have always been fantastic with me. Compared to larger trusts I have worked at, senior staff can spend more time with trainees here which means we learn more and get more experience.
“I am from Yorkshire and have always loved the area. I like to get outdoors in the beautiful countryside we are surrounded by, and also like to go fly fishing. With places like Newcastle and Middlesbrough not far away, there is plenty to do in the evening as well.”
