Small dirty mess on the eleventh floor. Luckily most of the wards seemed to have at least one office/break room for doctors.
Local Area

Most doctors lived elsewhere as commuting was so easy. Handful of nearby pubs which staff frequented. Lovely Punjabi cuisine which was available as delivery.

Review
Tertiary renal centre for all of East London, including transplants, therefore as you can imagine quite a busy job. You’ll cover mainly the transplant/surgical ward (for graft/access-related issues) and the gen neph ward (for dialysis/CKD/AKI), and also the HDU (fresh transplants/sick renal patients), and RAU (assessments/clerkings). You’ll definitely learn and see lots of interesting medicine and physiology, and naturally the registrars and consultants are rather clever and intellectual and teach you lots. The main downside as the only FY1 on the job (3 FY2s, 2-3 C/IMTs) was that I was often mollycoddled and sometimes felt patronised by certain seniors, especially as the department is very top-heavy.

Tertiary vascular centre in East London. Busy job with a high influx of patients, bulk being made up of chronic and acute limb ischaemias needing revascularisation/amputation, also EVAR/TEVARs. Some of the consultants also had weekly joint IR veins lists too for varicose veins procedures. The team was generally quite friendly, and were always keen to get us involved in theatre, but obviously SHOs came first- I was extremely surgery averse but I did help my reg do a below knee amputation which was pretty cool (but very gory, and the bone saw came dangerously close to my knuckles...). With surgical cases the main thing you'll be doing is listing them and making sure they have coags/G&S done. The main thing to be aware of is that vascular patients have many MANY medical comorbidities (bad diabetes, ESRF on dialysis, IVDU, often all three combined) which F1s basically had to deal with as the SpRs/consultants were clueless or didn’t care. In a way this was useful in a kind of “dive in at the deep end” way, and it definitely helped keep up medical knowledge during a surgical job, but often you would feel a bit isolated in terms of senior support, which I guess is commonplace across all surgical jobs. However there are 2/3 other F1s in the gang which is nice, and there was also regular POPS as well as renal input for the various medical issues, which was very helpful and hopefully is still ongoing. The team was generally quite friendly (which is good compared to other vascular centres I've heard about), but get yourself ready for a whole world of smells and odours, especially on the diabetic foot round...
