Car Parking
Make a change
Reasonably easy to park once you have a parking permit. But takes a while for the parking permit to come through and lots of criteria to meet to qualify for one.

Notes & systems
Make a change
Absolutely shambolic IT/admin system. All paper based. One of the major downsides of Queen's Hospital. The admin here is rotten. Takes at least 2-3 x longer to do something that would be really simple. Blood tests - requested on paper. Imaging - all requested on paper. A few near misses due to request forms going missing.
Food & Canteen
Make a change
Terrible food.
Facilities & Doctors Mess
Make a change
Mess improved in our year but is still relatively poor. Just a big space with lots of old sofas.

Didn't live in Romford but hear that it's not great.

Awful. Really understaffed, and quite toxic with a lot of blaming and shaming. Consultants seem to be out of touch with the realities of juniors. Registrars were lovely but very stressed by the higher ups. We were advised not to exception report, even though we often stayed late by 2+ hours. All the juniors I spoke with shared similar sentiments about this post. Only upside is the occasional good consultant-led teaching ward round. Avoid if you can.

In general, I would avoid FY in Queen's - it made me very disillusioned. Busy DGH with lots of tertiary services (kind of like a tertiary masquerading as a DGH). Large catchment area covering East London and Essex. Unfortunately not kitted up well to handle these demands. Many locums who have no ownership over the hospital. Continuity of care is often an issue. Terrible admin and electronic systems make simple tasks at least 2-3x harder than they should be. Have met many lovely brave souls who compensate in their own ways for the institutional deficiencies here. Many jobs largely service provision, limited training. Few extracurricular opportunities but always found it too busy to get anything done. Upside is the great medical education team who are very supportive.
