Avoid general surgery here at all costs. There is a general culture of undermining the Registrar's. They are spoken down to and given demeaning jobs. I would not say registrars are valued by the consultants. No one is allowed to operate independently, even a simple appendix. The department is inefficient and there is no motivation for it to change. The relationship with A&E is unpleasant and toxic

Toxic, bullying, undermining and one of the worst jobs you'll ever do. Trainees are continually belittled and spoke to with little respect. Minimal theatre time and when you are it is with minimal independence. Lots of people have complained, had discussions with management about the bullying from senior consultant staff and nothing changes. Slap a few civility posters on the wall and thats it all fixed. Behaviour is them mimicked my senior registrars. I thought I was going to be a surgeon and this made me re-think even being a doctor, why do adults treat other adults like this? (Have been totally torn to shreds by a registrar on multiple occasions with an audience to watch) Look after eachother as the cavalry are not coming to fix this anytime soon.

Lots of patients with minimal senior support and staffing issues on registrar, SHO and FY rotas. Seniors completely ignore the ward and leave all responsibility to the middle grades. Usual surgical ward round requires a rapid pace and ideally two or three months experience in the department before beginning to navigate successfully. Very little opportunity for operating/ clinic. No educational provision, teaching given ad-hoc by a few friendly middle grades.
