Poole Hospital in general was a dream to work in for Foundation Training! F1s in particular are very protected and well-supported, the whole hospital incredibly friendly, and a very active Mess (during pre-covid times) that organises lots of events including Watersports Wednesdays where everyone heads down to the beach to do some kayaking/paddle boarding/wind-surfing. Oncology as a department is fantastic - very friendly, lovely, approachable consultants who are keen to teach and happy to be called about their patients even when they are not on the wards. You often cross-cover with Haematology as well. There's departmental teaching weekly - which was very helpful considering the little amount that was taught on Oncology/Haematology in medical school - and they are keen to offer you a chance to sit in clinics/do some radiotherapy planning if you're interested. Rota-wise you do 1 long-day a week and 1 in 6 weekend cover. The rota had previously had weeks of being severely understaffed and it was very difficult at times - but since then, they have hired lots of Trust Grades to fill the gap and it's been very much better-staffed. Only downside to Poole would be the difficulty attending F2 teaching - usually find I can't escape the wards when it's busy. Overall, would highly recommend Poole Hospital for Foundation training. I've had the best time and made amazing friends. The hospital is small, so everyone knows you by name, there's a real sense of community and the support from all staff has been fantastic - couldn't recommend it enough!

Very friendly hospital. Good support out of hours as the clinical practitioners filter some of the bleeps overnight and the clinical techs are amazing for tricky bloods/cannulas. This does mean you can be quite protected from the 'acute' stuff. e-prescribing also makes your life easier when you're on nights. Teaching can be hit and miss, quite a few sessions do seem to get cancelled last minute. Some wards do have a reputation for poor staffing/rota gaps although there are a number of locums/trust grades, of which a number of them have done their Foundations at Poole - must mean they like the hospital enough to stick around. The mess is very active with regular events/takeaway food for lunch in the weekends etc. It also has an amazing view out to Sandbanks + balcony as it's on the top floor of the hospital. Foundation doctors get offered hospital accommodation on this top floor (aka 'the penthouse', but with quite basic uni halls-type rooms) so you quickly make friends. Overall a very nice hospital.

Really recommend the respiratory job at Poole. Very supported by the consultants and well supervised. Normally really well staffed ward and a ward with great nurses and wider MDT.

Really friendly department who have worked on flattening the hierarchy and are really supportive. F1 rota is particularly good for hours/out of hours and the F2 rota has been more tough with hours/nights but is supposed to be changing soon. The consultant team are just really friendly and supportive.
