    I've never heard of Pinderfields.
    Lucky you Although its just changed from a WW2-esque hut style hospital to a flash and sprawling glass and chrome hospital.

    Yep, patients will now get a beautiful view of the M11 instead of the rather pretty duckpond. I loved the old postcards showing all the patients' beds wheeled out onto the balcony to "take the air" - they've stopped doing that for some reason now.

    And while it is a shame, I can see why they're doing it - it's a bit of an anomaly to have one of the world's leading cardiac surgery centres (and one of only two-I think-PCI centres in East Anglia) in a tiny village in the middle of nowhere!
    Haha sounds just like Harefield!

    the huts are /were dire, the new hospital is nearly fully finished, they were due to hand over the rest of the hospital to the trust just before christmas but apparently it'srunning a little behind ..,

    Which part are you on about sorry? I think you mean chances of ending up in Tees so I'll answer that and hope I'm right. Basically third year if you don't want to be there you probably won't and then in 5th year the demand for Tees goes up due to the cheaper cost of living and also the better teaching making it easier to get one of the bases where you can stay in Newcastle. Honestly, the change of scenery is nice midway through the course anyway!
    Really?? I agree about 3rd year although one of my friends got it for next year, but I thought 5th year nobody wanted to be in Tees. I'm in Northumbria next year, so I'd like to be back in Newcastle for 5th year!

    I'm really surprised to hear that! The way that even at interviews they make very clear that "you may need to live away from Newcastle" made me think that it was common for people who didn't want Tees to be put down there.
    Well it's a chance of a 1/4 in 3rd year and 1/3 in 5th... You rank the base units in order and then you get your highest preference depending on how high in a random list you come - so it's basically random
