Busy MTC. Worked here during the lull between the two main COVID waves. Extremely well supported and seniors are all nice. Feel free to run anything and everything by them. Wide variety of cases and opportunity to get involved in the Resus area, but only if you are quite proactive. Only issue is that a lot of the female and foreign-sounding doctors felt discriminated against by the nursing team which at times could be quite toxic. However steps are taken to resolve this.

Pre-COVID. Very busy tertiary unit. Regularly 40-60 patients. Patients had tendency to become unwell and you often felt unsupported. Things improved throughout the placement and after I finished they had an on-call HPB SpR who would be responsible for ward queries. Nurses were fantastic which really helped. By the end of the placement it was quite manageable to be honest and wasn't the horror story that I had been told before starting the placement. A couple of consultants were rude/shouty but the rest were nice/okay. Workload was quite high, rarely finished at 5 but usually left at 5.30pm, 2 times a month at 6pm. Post-COVID workload had dropped and became not bad at all.

Very easy placement in the sense that it's so senior lead (it's very specialist) you don't have to think at all. Renal Medicine SpRs always around. Not the best placement to learn how to be a doctor as you're just doing administrative tasks. Patients didn't get unwell that often but when they do you would get senior help very readily (especially when a new graft is at risk). Workload was manageable and usually left between 5-5.30pm but annoyingly you often had Renal Consultants wanting to do ward rounds in the afternoon which could add to your workload with not much time left in the day. Ward team, pharmacists and consultants all lovely.

Really enjoyed this job. The ward is shared with Max-Fax but they have their own juniors. There are daily senior registrar run ward rounds and they are always available for advice during the day. As the SHO you carry the on-call bleep and take and see referrals from A&E/GP's. There were lots of other SHO's around however when I was there so there was always people to share the bleep with and we would take turns carrying it. This allows you to gain loads of experiences early on with nearby senior support when needed, though you are kind of expected to get on with it a little bit. As it's a head and neck cancer centre you get to see and be involved in all the big H&N cancer operations. Also as it's a busy inner city hospital the on-calls are super interesting with a variety of cases including penetrating neck injuries as well as the usual epistaxis/peri-tonsillar abscesses. There were chances to go to theatre (even as a locum!) and the consultants are generally really friendly and happy for you to get involved. The department is full of professors so there's loads of opportunities for projects. The only downside to the job is that there isn't a very well stocked ENT treatment room, this meant dealing with somethings can be tricky and there was only one fiberoptic nasoendoscope when I was there so this had to be protected at all costs! I would definitely recommend this job for anyone interested in ENT and keen to get lots of hands on experience however and I would do this job again in a heartbeat.
