Car Parking
Make a change
Parking is on site across two main areas and is free (currently does not require a permit either) 1. The staff car park closest to the main entrance + multi story - This always has availability before 0900, after it can become more challenging - 2 min walk to main entrance which is mostly covered from rain 2. Staff parking at the bottom of the site near the hospice - This is the backup as there are always spaces, but is poorly lit and down a hill (approx 4 min walk from hospital to your car) so many people do not like parking there if on shifts that finish late due to safety concerns

Local Area
Make a change
The FY1s tend to live in the onsite accommodation, which are separate houses. Many juniors live in Swansea itself and commute - the Swansea Marina area seems popular. Due to its proximity to the M4, some live further away in Cardiff/Bridgend and West wales.

Overall a pretty horrible job. Extremely understaffed on the SHO rota we were 6 SHOs short when I was there. Wards are generally pretty unsupported, some of the consultants are better than others and will actually help out, most just don't care. On calls are extremely busy and at night they can be impossible as you are both ward cover and the take between just an SHO and reg with the reg being called to theatre for emergencies.l you are often left on your own. The only good part of the job was the teaching which ran most Tuesdays.

Terrible department. HR is merciless when it comes to rota. Unable to request any pending annual leaves. Registrars are very supportive but most of them wants to leave, claims very unsupported. Nursing staff is very rude in the ward. The head nurse occassionally belittles doctors , make life a living hell. I feel this place needs a lot of improvement in terms of departmental support. I can vouch for the training opportunities offered here, seniors make sure to conduct SIM/teaching sessions.
