    Hi all,

    Still looking for the other trainees who will be starting in Genomics/Bioinformatics (Genomics) in Newcastle!

    Would love to say hello before September

    Hey guys, has anyone been able to find out the university that is providing the Genomics course for 2016 trainees? I know it hadn't been announced a while ago and still can't seem to find it.
    I emailed and they said it has yet to be confirmed but is likely to be Manchester. Has anyone else has the same response?

    When I asked a couple of weeks ago they just said "there is no information yet regarding which university". I guess we just have to wait!

    I also asked them when our details are getting passed onto the trusts and they said it would be this week.

    If it is Manchester I might end up doing some of the same modules as I have done this year! Some of the Bioinformatics STP students have been in a couple of my modules so wouldn't be surprised if it was the same with Genomics next year.

    I have lived in Manchester for the past 3 years and I am training in South Manchester to do Gastro from Sept (my uni is Newcastle) so if anyone has any questions regarding nice areas to live then just ask! I currently live in Salford,about a 10/15min walk from the city centre and work at The University of Manchester so I know most of the popular areas to live quite well

    Hey all! I got the offer for Clinical Biochemistry at Leeds (a while back now, and I've been twiddling my thumbs since), and I was curious whether anyone knows what roughly the timescale is from now to when the trusts get in touch? I tried emailing the NSHCS but they've not got back to me - does it take them a while to process emails? Also, would anyone have any knowledge of how flexible trusts are with start dates? I have a friend who started last year and was able to push back her start date at the hospital until after the lecture block, but I wonder if that's a rare exception.

    It would also be great to get in touch with any other STPs that will be training at Leeds or nearby!

    We (a receiving department!) have only just been told about our outcomes, so will be sorting the posts out over the coming week or so. I'm guessing our HR department will be contacting our candidates over the same period.
    The performance or hospital HR departments does vary considerably though! Plus, I'm not sure that all receiving departments have been informed.

    Yep, I was first time lucky, couldn't believe it if I'm honest. I'm finishing a PhD in molecular biology at the moment, and my undergrad was biochemistry. I picked Leeds as my first preference because that's where I live at the moment, so I won't be relocating at all. But I definitely would have if I had to.

    What helped me a lot I think was a 3-month internship I did as part of my PhD at a hospital, where I did research but also sat in on clinics, went on ward rounds etc, so any experience in a hospital setting I think is a great plus.

    Did anyone actually receive any feedback yet? I emailed the feedback email quite a while ago and I've not heard beyond acknowledgement of my email!

    I got my feedback about 2 weeks ago for biochemistry. I got asked to supply i.d and i got the feedback about 20 minutes later. Although you email another address it is the NSHCS that act on the information request so maybe there is a backlog of people requesting their feedback now?

    Hey - anyone going to a trust in London - do you know what the extra supplementary wage Is to compensate for the high costs of living in london? I believe it's 20% of the salary so around £5k but need some confirmation before I start house hunting! Thanks

    Funny, wonder why it is taking so long for them to get back to me, I didn't send i.d. at the time but they haven't asked me for it yet. Guess I'll just have to sit and wait, it's not like it's really going to help me until next year anyway I guess!!!!!

    How did you find your feedback? Do you think it will give you a better chance next year (or did you get on this year?)?

    Hi everyone! Congratulations to everyone who got places. Just after a bit of advice for next year as I wasn't shortlisted this year: what sort of experience and degrees did everyone have/do that were successful? I'm about to graduate with a Biochemistry degree and am going to apply for a support worker job at my local haematology lab that offered a place for the STP this year so I'm hoping this will boost my application next year. Any tips will be much appreciated!!
