Location, Location, Location?!

No not the TV programme. Although I like that.

Foundation jobs.

Where to choose?

As anyone who follows me on Twitter (@studentdocdiary) will know, I got into my first choice foundation school. This is a HUGE foundation school, so I now have big thinking to do about which jobs to rank and where.

My family home and my uni home are both within the foundation school. This means I'd like to think I know a fair bit about the area. This isn't necessarily a good thing. I have a lot of preconceived prejudice about some areas.

I've seen one job I really like the look of. It's near my flat so I wouldn't have to move. It's got paeds in it (YAY!), but unfortunately it also has obs and gynae... the only thing that makes me want to faint! On the plus side the FY2 jobs linked to it are either at my home trust (where my Mum died) or in Crapsville. I might go an spend a day visiting Crapsville to see if it really is as bad as I think?!

Congrats on getting your first choice!
I've worked in Maidstone hospital for 3 years as a HCA and live near Medway hospital so if you have any questions about the areas these hospials are in, feel free to ask me :)
Good luck making your decision on jobs!

I'm curious about Medway, only time I've been in Gillingham was to go to the ice skating rink... If you have a chance drop me an email at and I'll bombard you with questions about Maidstone and Medway!
