Why do people like working at the QE?

We are a small friendly hospital. By the end of the first year you will know most people. Check the YSYS survey on the Northern Foundation School site for more detailed analysis

Why do we only offer only a fixed rotation for F1 year and not for F1 and F2 year?

Past experience of F1 doctors who frequently 6 months into F1 year have changed their minds about which direction they want to take their careers.
