Region Overview

The Trent region includes a wide geographic area of the East Midlands, including the counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Rutland. Within these counties there are a diverse range of busy city hospitals and more rural community hospitals, all caring for older people. Many of these hospitals have links to our excellent University campuses across the region including the Universities of Nottingham and Leicester. There are strong research networks linking across the region including the East Midlands Research into Ageing Network. We have nationally recognised areas of excellence in the care of older people within our region.

Not only is the area a great place to work, but there are also great colleagues who have an active role in the BGS. Past BGS President's have included, Professor Adam Gordon and Professor Tahir Masud.

BGS Trent regional meetings have developed over the years into a well-attended local meeting, with a variety of  interesting keynote speakers. These meetings have lead to fantastic engagement between hospital teams throughout the region, spreading best practice and new ideas.
