You will spend 6 months in this busy, quite medical, casualty department. You will work as a middle grade (registrar) but there is always a senior registrar or consultant on the shop floor with you at all times, including nights.

There is a clinical decision unit which allows for some continuity of patients. There is weekly A&E teaching as well as primary care A&E teaching.

You will spend at least a week in paediatric A&E and lots of time in the urgent care centre (primary care led).

Although being a registrar can be daunting, there is lots of extra help around and the experience gained from managing juniors is invaluable.
