Excellent well ran department. would really recommend JCF/F3 role here. Self rostering is a game changer for ED rotas. 1/3 weekends. Great senior support.

Northern General Hospital
The junior rota is terrible. You will find yourself drained out mentally and physically. Patients are nice, but can be difficult to get bloods and insert cannulas. Nursing staff in the ward aren't th

Manor Hospital
The most toxic unit I’ve worked in. Insecure and not overly competent consultants who hate trainees. The worst rota imaginable. Unfriendly. One of the consultants is racist beyond belief and no compla

Charing Cross Hospital
Very unsupported. There is a lot of really questionable decision-making going on and no real consequences. Any issues are ignored or swept under the carpet! Definitely a place to avoid !!
General (internal) Medicine
The Royal Oldham Hospital
Very demanding job for an F1. Good when supported but certain aspects of the rota are particularly unsupported for example when on call. Need to seek out further opportunities rather than them being p

Shambolic department. Worst 4 month placement I've had to endure. Although the sense of teamwork was excellent and the registrars were very approachable, the patients were very sick and staying 45+ m

St Mary's Hospital
This was an excellent FY2 job overall. The job is team based, so you are attached to a consultant and senior registrar. You are very much a “surgical SHO” in the sense that your rota is made up of c

Busy job, most seniors are very friendly / supportive, you’ll learn loads if you want to. Overnight cross cover for neuro/stroke is tough but manageable.

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!

The Junior Doctors Team ❤️
