Dr Martin G Parry qualified in 1989 from Guy’s Hospital Medical School. He completed his specialist training in anaesthesia within the North Thames Central School of Anaesthesia and then spent a further year in Toronto, Canada. In 1999 he was appointed as a consultant in paediatric anaesthesia at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust where he was actively involved in both undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. During this period, Martin was the Royal College of Anaesthetists tutor in Brighton and the training programme director of the South Coast School of Anaesthesia.

Martin was appointed to the role of STFS Associate Director (Brighton) in 2007. During his time in this role he supported the development of the foundation programme locally and helped to develop the use of simulation in foundation training.

He is an honorary senior lecturer at Brighton and Sussex Medical School.

Jessica Eccles MA(Cantab) MB BCh graduated in 2006 and completed the new foundation training programme at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals. It was there, as an academic foundation trainee, that she learnt directly from experience many of the principles (and challenges) of audit, which have helped inform this module. With a strong interest in medical education and sciences of the mind, she is due to start (2009) an NIHRD Academic Clinical Fellowship in Psychiatry at the new Brighton and Sussex Medical School, whose first year graduated as she finished foundation training.
