The North East region stretches from Northumberland to Teesside.
It has a meeting of the regional consultants twice yearly to discuss matters of mutual interest and monthly academic meetings that rotate around the different hospitals as hosts.
The region has been very active in peer review and with regionalisation we are planning conduits where local consultants can raise issues of concern for local discussion and potential passing up to the BSR. Also for disseminating requests for information/opinion from the BSR. Our role in supporting each others units during the current changes to the NHS is under discussion.
