The people are very friendly and usually will help you to some degree, but the work rota and culture are toxic, there is not a day you will go home on time. You are regularly expected to stay beyond your scheduled hours and any questioning of this fact is, in their eyes, unexceptable. You will almost always work understaffed. Ward rounds generally last untill 1-3pm and often times even till 4pm. Yes on occasion ward rounds will last till 4pm…. And then as a junior doctor your duties will start, so how are you actually supposed to finish all your duties in two hours if your contracted hours are only till 6. Locum work, below the consultant grade at least, is also fairly stingy, considering the workload that will get dumped on you. Overall would not recommend this hospital to anyone with a choice.

I worked here at SHO level. It is a very busy rotation. Outdated hospital lacking in basic facilities. Department is full of trust grade registrars and incompetent consultants body, which are generally lazy and workshy, timekeeping of whole department needs improvement, consultants regularly turn up an hour late. You will not be able to get wbas signed as consultants are reluctant to do it. Consultants actively ask you to stay beyond contracted hours and you have to cover any staff leave as locum on top of already busy rota. If you refuse to do this you are punished for it with your arcp outcomes affected. Ward rounds always last till lunch due to high number of inpatients and slow consultants. These are the longest surgical ward rounds i have witnessed in my career. Poor rota design with lots of unsupervised out of hours work. You also cover ENT at night. Department is reluctant to give any sort of leave due to staff shortages. There is also some culture of bullying and racism in the department with locals given preferential treatment and training opportunities. Local politics of Northern Ireland affects medical practice and how hospitals are run. Poor resources have affected Antrim hospital, it should be shut down immediately.
