Narrative (approx. 200 words)


Lister hospital is one of the biggest if not the biggest DGH in the North Central rotation. We pride ourselves to be a very friendly department with excellent training opportunities. All the general training units can be achieved in one convenient placement. We have recently expanded our theatre complex adding 4 new spanking new theatres with day case facilities and even more training opportunities. Lister is just of the A1(M) and within an easy drive from North London( traffic flowing in the opposite direction) and fantastic train connections from  Kings Cross ( fast trains take approximately 25 mins).
