Complete meme experience. Order bloods in the morning, they come back at 5PM. If you do a twilight shift here you're basically just chasing up bloods for 3 hours after clocking in. YY fudgin' bother i
Geriatric Medicine
Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr
Small hospital, only 2-3 novices rotating in each August/Feb intake. Get to know consultants (both Anaesthetic and surgical) really quickly which is nice as they'll let you get on with your own thing
Anaesthetics
Royal Hampshire County Hospital
Overall very unhappy with the workload, was advised in private to avoid the deanery for training.
Neurosurgery
NHS Education for Scotland
Overall a good place to train and build up your clinical confidence and acumen. Due to how remote the hospital is, you often get to know a lot of the medics in the area. Acute medicine is based on
Acute Internal Medicine
Raigmore Hospital
Supportive, friendly hospital. Predominantly service provision with relatively uninterested consultant body in teaching. Reliant on IMGs for most F3/SHO posts
Foundation Programme
Dorset County Hospital

Our Mission

For a while now Junior Doctors in the U.K. have been infantilised. National recruitment has reduced us down to a number (scoring our non-clinical work) and a first impression. From this we are expected to rank hundreds of jobs, often across the whole of the U.K., based on nothing but the name of a hospital and a speciality. A decision on where we will spend the next 2-8 years of our life, where we may have to uproot (or sometimes leave) our family and friends for, based on less information than we use to decide what coffee to buy.

We think we can do better.

JuniorDoctors.co.uk is a community based effort to change this. By sharing information on our jobs and training posts (via reviews) we empower ourselves (and future trainees) to make better and more informed choices when choosing and ranking jobs. It also allows us to highlight areas that are providing a good training experience as well as those that aren’t. Change is often slow, but we hope by making this information more transparent that we can change this and improve working and training conditions for us all.

Like all community based efforts JuniorDoctors.co.uk will live or die on the level of engagement from our community. We built this with love to help you and other trainees and we’re always open to feedback (just email [email protected] if you have any) to improve this site and better achieve our goals!

Privacy will always be our top priority at JuniorDoctors.co.uk and all reviews are anonymous with no personal identifiable information saved against them, this will never change.

If our mission resonates with you we would urge you to leave a review for your past placements (both good and bad) and together let’s making training more open and better for all of us!
