Orthopaedic Trainer of the Year

Make no bones about it, NHS Forth Valley Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Mr Ian McLean is very talented indeed.

He was recently persuaded to give up an overnight on-call, so he could collect the much-coveted Trainer of the Year award for the West of Scotland Orthopaedic Training Programme. Due to the insistence of trainees, he eventually bowed to pressure to go along to the award ceremony in person and give a speech.

This is a huge personal achievement and recognition for the quality of teaching in the Forth Valley Royal Hospital’s Orthopaedic Unit. Colleagues across the hospital were delighted that Mr McLean has been recognised for his efforts and say they feel very lucky to have him as part of their orthopaedic training team.
