Tim Mason

Nominated for Paediatric Senior Hero (ST4-8 & SAS doctors)

“Tim’s efforts in organising education across the region have been brilliant and really appreciated. He has helped to co-ordinate teaching sessions pre and during COVID across the region to 2 deaneries worth of trainees- producing a podcast to record sessions for those who haven’t been able to attend and latterly via video conferencing. Tim even managed to run remote simulation sessions which is incredibly impressive. Thank you Tim for all of your hard work.

Tim is an absolute gem. He is the kindest and most supportive person to work with and always makes a special effort to make sure that you are supported. You always feel with Tim that no question is a silly question and he always wants to help you to learn. He is a relaxed and competent registrar and you know that everything is in hand when he is on shift. He does an amazing job with simulation, always finding ways to innovate and make learning memorable. His use of the 360 goggles in sim and his creative ways to keep simulation running during Covid were inspirational. Not only does he do a great job with the simulation itself, but he makes sure to follow up on it and collates our learning into posters which he circulates to all. He is a huge asset to the team. Hardworking, team spirited and impacts knowledge on others selflessly

Tim is an unsung but outstanding senior paediatric trainee in the Peninsula region. He is incredibly active across the entire of the region, but remains bafflingly humble and reticent to acknowledge his prowess. Tim is well known for his passion for simulation and education. He has made significant impacts in departments he has worked in, developing and influencing both their delivery and effectiveness of teaching and improving simulation services.

Tim has also lead the PenTRAIN group for some years. This is a trainee-led group focussed on innovation, research and development of regional services. He has tirelessly networked, recruited and driven forward projects, yielding a number of publications, national level presentations and generally putting Peninsula on the map for Paediatric research and development. Beyond all this, Tim is just a really nice man, a lovely colleague and a good doctor. Well done!”
