Results of FICM Trainee Representative Election 2023

Published 30/11/2023

We are pleased to announce that Dr Rosie Worrall, a dual ICM/Anaes trainee from Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, has been successfully elected as our Deputy Trainee Representative. We hope you will join us in congratulating and welcoming them to the Faculty!

Rosie will officially start her term of office at our Board meeting on the 17 January 2024.

Their election statement was as follows: 

WORRALL, Rosemary – Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham

Nominated by Dr Dhruv Parekh

My name is Rosie and I am a less than full time ST7 ICM and anaesthesia trainee within the West Midlands. I live in Birmingham with my husband and children.

I have extensive trainee management experience including:

  • Current joint West Midlands ICM Trainee Representative
  • LTFT Anaesthesia/Critical Care trainee lead for a large tertiary centre, managing bespoke rotas for over 30 trainees
  • Trainee Wellbeing Representative - part of the team awarded first prize (mid-COVID) for the Association of Anaesthetists Trainee Wellbeing Initiative.

Maintaining work life balance is hard; working within ICM is hard; and there is often additional red tape that can and should be simplified.  We are on the precipice of a massive shift within the NHS; as the future of ICM we should not be left behind and ensure trainees have a voice. 

If I am successful, I would aim to:

  • Formalise the communication pathways between regional and national trainee representatives
  • Increase the transparency of the “unwritten” rules of training
  • Improve the usability of LLP
  • Minimise the obstacles for all trainees with an interest in ICM to achieve CCT or equivalent
  • Develop further guidance on competency-based progression in ICM.

Many thanks to all the nominees for applying and to everyone that voted!
