Buckle up. Organisation and staffing at Medway is catastrophic. The-on calls are intensely busy and juniors and staff are stretched with very poor senior support. Next to no opportunity for rest on nights. Worked in nearly every department except O+G, Anaesthetics and ENT but from what colleagues tell me they are all just as busy. Formal training is limited but intensity of workload and significant/delayed pathology means your skills and knowledge ramp up pretty sharpish. Locality and local population are not particularly friendly. Better departments: Resp - very supportive consultants The Mess - big ole TV weekly restocking of biscuits Canteen - decent portion sizes with moderate prices Avoid A&E - I cannot stress to you enough, very rogue environment and decision making. Intense workload. Acute Med - poor and uninspiring senior support Orthopaedics - Nighttime SHO on-call is the 2nd worst job in the hospital Gen Surg - Nighttime SHO is the worst shift in the hospital (covering theatres, ED, Trauma calls, Surgical admissions and wards for Urology and Gen Surg) Medway’s redeeming feature is that everyone is having such a bad time in unison that everyone gets on and you come out the other end better for it.
