Review
Very supportive medical education department. You don't always get the best foundation teaching (cancelled often during COVID-19); however, the actual staff of the medical education department give off the impression that they really care about your education and wellbeing and will help you out if you need it! Electronic documentation and prescribing. Like most hospitals, FY1 is pretty similar across the board in terms of running the wards throughout the day, discharges/TTO's, reviewing sick patients. However, on-call you get a lot more free reign and independence to review sick patients (there's no MET calls or anything, so a lot of the time you're the first person before escalating to your SHO or SpR!). As a smallish DGH with a lot of opportunity to practice skills and see high acuity patients as a junior doctor if you're willing to put the effort in. No nights as a foundation doctor, but have to do 7 days in a row of 16:00 to 00:00 instead, not sure if this is better! Particular noteworthy departments include AMU (great consultants, well supported department), general surgery (very busy but can have a lot of independence as a junior trainee) and anaesthetics/ICU. ED can be a bit of a miss, medical job in FY2 as an SHO is a big step up compared to FY1 job. Med staffing (like most hospitals) is a bit meh.
