Clinical staff were superficially nice, but didn't care about training, and were interested in running service only. No genuine feedback given despite asking.
Rota is busy but not unreasonable. However rota coordinators are terrible, unreasonable and uncaring and despite numerous attempts by juniors, no one has been able to address it and senior consultant are either powerless to change things or do not care.
Work space is cramped and limited ability to work efficiently.
Leicester Royal Infirmary
Rota gaps, poor rota planning and short staffing are the main themes of medicine at the royal infirmary. When it is raised with senior management we are often told that we are lucky with what we have. Trainees are treated like a number with the limited training opportunities we have cancelled last minute due to the aforementioned 3 themes.
There are some fantastic consultants, nurses and other healthcare professionals but unfortunately it is not enough to change the trainee experience overall.
JDAs (rota coordinators) are inflexible with leave requests, even if requested much ahead of time.
Parking is a nightmare and we pay a lot for the experience.
