    It's the bottom point of band 6 :-)
    I assume it's the same everywhere except London?

    So at the moment it's £26,302

    I think central London is £26,302 + 20%, and outer London is less!

    I'm on reserve list for medical physics..too bad but there is still hope! A question for the other applicants of med phys, to people who applied last year and maybe to someone who is working for NHS: what did/would you do to follow the path of medical physics and maybe wait for the STP next year? Where can you get some experience in this field or in a related one? Anyway congratulations to everyone who got an offer!!! Best of luck for who is still waiting!
    I'm a HoD in Medical Physics, but have a couple of STP applicants so am hanging round here! I would advise you to apply for jobs via NHS jobs website. There is a general scarcity of state registered staff (depending on speciality), so quite often we will take on people with a physics degree and train them ourselves. For the right person, this can end with the same outcome: registration.

    I have seen many jobs advertised by NHS but all of them required HCPC registration!

    Band 7 and above posts will need registration, but below that is Practitioner level, where a degree is required. I have grown my own past two physicists, with on the job training, leading to HCPC registration. There are not enough STPs coming through to work in MP, so we often have to take un-registered graduates on.
    For any band 7 post, I would at least get in touch with the contact in the job description and discuss your situation, as I know of several departments that are finding it really difficult to recruit registered staff.

    They haven't even finished the first round of offers yet! Still waiting on Cardiac and Vascular. Vascular isn't going out until tomorrow. Wednesday is the first deadline for accepting / holding / rejecting offers so there might be some after that? But I think if people hold offers then they can be held for a week?! I might be wrong about the last part though.

    Hey, I think I read somewhere that this is not allowed (you might want to check rather than just take my word though obviously!). I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that training must be completed in the trust that you start at.

    So can carry on with a normal life for a while without refreshing Oriel like a crazy person, thanks for that.
    Dont really think anyone from reserve gets a place but can just hope.

    Does anyone know when they are releasing cardiac offers?
    I was thinking that seeing as they didn't send out an email saying it was going to be Wednesday like they did with vascular, that it might be today. But that might just be wishful thinking

    I think direct entry people have heard, don't know about in service applicants, you might want to check your junk or clutter folders, my email went to the clutter folder

    I've just sent NSHCS an email asking if in service offers are being sent out at the end after the direct entry people have received theirs. And as I type this I've had a reply from them, "If you are in service, you should hear tomorrow."

    I guess that saves me from panicking for the rest of the day, and I can begin all over again tomorrow!
