Great place to start working as an F1 (and beyond), but especially for us F1s. An incredibly friendly hospital, where the hierarchy is close to none. Lots of integration between staff, consultants even host parties for everyone. Additionally, great mess who host lots of events (including outdoor activities and nights out eg. surf trip to Devon), really good teaching programme - every Tues, Weds & Thurs there is foundation teaching, giving you an option to go to at least one per week.
You get a lot of responsibility as an F1, covering a wide range of pts on both medical, surgical and clerking on-calls, opportunity to do procedures, go to theatre and scrub in, attend cardiac arrests etc. I feel better prepared for FY2 having trained as an F1 at Musgrove, although caveats include that it has been morr stressful having more responsibility.
