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!
The Junior Doctors Team ❤️
