Car Parking
Make a change
There is a system of permits on-site. You are only able to apply for a permit if your journey is >hour on public transport (in main commuting hours, not OOH). If you do qualify the wait is approx 4-6 months. Better to use public transport if possible.
Public Transport
Make a change
Good train links from Norbiton station. Very cycle friendly with lots of bike sheds.
Notes & systems
Make a change
Uses Cerner. Most wards have a few COWs that aren’t working. Uses traditional bleeps.
Food & Canteen
Make a change
Cateen food is hit and miss. Expensive and rarely that tasty (awful fish and chips on a Friday). Only other option is Costa. Costa is open overnight (closed for break between 2am and 3am). Otherwise there is a revolting hot food vending machine which is best avoided!
Facilities & Doctors Mess
Make a change
Poor doctors mess compared to other hospitals. Snacks available once a week which run out in a day. Scrubs available often running out. Awful sleeping facilities in the computer room where people need to work and take bleeps. No gym. Good library.
Local Area
Make a change
Most live somewhere on the train line such as Clapham, Balham, Putney, etc.

In terms of what Kingston Hospital does to add to your training it's exactly zero. There is no IMT teaching. There 4 personal development days given to all SHOs every rotation, however these are often used in lieu of rest days. Getting to clinics is challenging and it's frequent to be turned away. Considering the large education centre there has been no SIM day etc. Essentially the Trust does nothing to train you and does everything to use you as service provision.

'Training' is not really something I can comment on at Kingston, because I haven't received any. IMTs are used solely as service provision. There is no local teaching. There is occasional and randomly advertised 'teaching days' (afternoons..) for which obtaining study leave is a battle. We did have clinic time protected but this was taken away from us (kept for the foundation docs though) as 'it just didn't work with the rota'. Our training needs are met with contempt, but frankly so are our basic needs. Rotas sent out just before moving rotation, heavy challenges to taking annual leave. I would recommend IMT at Kingston precisely 0/10.
