Public Transport
Make a change
There are several buses available but is about a half hour walk to the nearest Metro station.
Notes & systems
Make a change
There is electronic prescribing but notes are paper-based. There is a mix of bleeps and vocera.
Food & Canteen
Make a change
The canteen is great - main attraction is the roast dinner on a Thursday. There is also a Costa and a Subway but nothing is open overnight.
Facilities & Doctors Mess
Make a change
There is a small library in the clinical skills area.
Local Area
Make a change
A lot of juniors live in Newcastle and commute; there is so much more going on in Newcastle and it feels quite remote by comparison but it is much cheaper to live in Gateshead and there are some nice areas.

Good job overall supported but also encouraged appropriate independent decision making. However I often started early and stayed late.

This was a haematology, endocrine and rheumatology ward although general medical with younger/more complex patients in reality. All the consultants that are still there were very supportive, actively made time for teaching and cups of tea and cake. Staffing could be short at times but nursing team were great and overall I enjoyed this job. Good balance of trust from consultants but also leadership where needed. I was able to go to haematology clinic a couple of times which was useful.

I worked there both as F1 and F2. As F1 we were very much left on the ward to manage but our skills not really trusted by seniors, however there were 4 of us and it was quite enjoyable due to the sociability. As F2 the SHO role was very different. I wasn't keen on theatres and lacked confidence here but despite trying to get stuck in and learn felt my confidence decrease in this area. However, I really enjoyed the oncalls as the person attending A+E with non-resident reg for advice.

Great team but department tiny for size of hospital can make a challenging physical environment. Not enough computers or space to see people, but very on it with leave, breaks, training and teaching
