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!

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!(Original post by Beska)
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.
