BARNSLEY Hospital's emergency department has been rated as the best in the country for the quality of their training.

Each year the General Medical Council ask second-year trainee doctors to rate the quality of training where they're working at that particular time.

This year's results have shown that Barnsley Hospital was rated the best in the country.

Dr David Walker, consultant at the hospital, said: "Our trainees regularly tell us that they're pleased with the quality of training they received.

"It's nice to have this confirmed in these results."
