Public TransportMake a change
There are several buses available but is about a half hour walk to the nearest Metro station.
Notes & systemsMake a change
There is electronic prescribing but notes are paper-based. There is a mix of bleeps and vocera.
Food & CanteenMake 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 MessMake a change
There is a small library in the clinical skills area.
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.
