    Think I'll be based at The Royal London Hospital, very exciting I absolutely cannot wait! Yeah, I'm moving there from the North!
    awesome, the Royal London is one of the four hospitals for biochem too. so I might also be there!

    Wow big move for you then? I'm already in London for my PhD so thankfully won't have to move too far!

    No, I'm waiting for Vascular and Cardiac, although I wanted to apply for respiratory, but thought I had a better chance with vascular. Just killing time, wondering if there are people with offers from other specialisms who might accept their other offer immediately or whether they would prefer cardiology so waiting for that! I know a lot of people apply for cardiology and resp / sleep!

    It really doesn't change anything for me, just curious!
    Oh cool. Hopefully you'll hear soon. Which do you prefer vascular or cardiac?

    Im a reserve for genomic counselling and to be honest i'm absolutely heart broken but that's the way the cookie crumbles I suppose :P!

    Im pretty sure I know where I lost marks at interview, the NHS Core Values and the Genomic Counselling station. The GC station was my final station and by that point I was so spaced out I actually couldn't tell you what I said or didn't say. Im keeping all my fingers crossed because I put down every hospital as a preference but I'll be honest, I don't think it'll happen this year. I can't think of any other career I would want to be a part of, so i'll be applying again next year but Im not sure what to do in the mean time? I'm currently finishing my MRes and I work part time in a patient facing role but I'd really hate to go back full time to my part time job (I worked there for 2 years full time prior to the MRes). I've been trying to find a way that I could apply for roles that would make me an in-service applicant next year for Genomic counselling but I genuinely cannot find anything in that department in the entire of the UK.

    Congratulations to everyone who has been offered a post, it's been such a horrendous and draining process so truly well done ! I think everyone who applied back in Feb shouldn't feel too disheartened because what an epic journey we've all been on!

    I'd prefer cardiac, but think I have a better chance of vascular, if I have any chance at all!

    Why would you prefer cardiac?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I just studied a lot more content related to the cardiac specialism during my degree, nothing against vascular.

    Those of us who have offers still have to pass the pre-employment checks before we get an offer of employment. Does anyone know what these entail? Is it a given that we will pass these, or can employers reject applicants they find unsuitable, and if so, what sort of criteria do they use?
    I had just finished the process of going through pre-employment checks for a different position (nuclear medicine techologist) before i got my second choice STP place. They just check your references, CRB/DBS check and your right to work. All in it took around 3 weeks and once they were complete I got my unconditional offer of employment and told to contact my line manager to arrange a start date.
    As horrible as i felt, I told them today I wouldnt be able to take the position (because i got this) but thats the process I recently went through!

    Not really. Cardiac does seem to be more popular though.

    It's a shame we have to wait longer than everyone else. I would like to know why we're the last to find out.


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I know, even biochem where a trust pulled out have found out sooner. The wait is driving me crazy, I just want it to be over either way. I wonder what the hold up is. I thought for sure at the rate that they were going through offers yesterday that they'd have finished the first round of offers by today at the latest.

    I don't know if anybody knows this but do we receive our scores from the interview? Sorry if I've missed a message here!

    Do they confirm your references before they're contacted? I need to change the details for one of mine (if I get an offer).


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Not as far as I know. I didn't get notified that they were even contacting my references, i just found out they had been contacted when i took my passport to the trust so they could check it in person. If you get an offer, id suggest contacting HR at the trust and explaining you need to change one of your references

    I'm guessing that a Trust is considering removing or including places for both specialities. Or maybe they've got issues over the marking schemes. I can't think of any other reasons why they would just target C&V.

    I hope we do find out tomorrow.

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yeah, I really hope no trusts have withdrawn this late in the game! Good luck for tomorrow!

    At what stage do they contact your current employer? I'd rather give my notice myself and work up until close to the program starting. Cant see them being too happy when they find out from my next employer that I'm jumping ship.

    Sorry to hear this and I hope that you are successful next year (or get a later offer this year).
    If it's any consolation, I was also applying for this specialism and I received an outright unsuccessful at interview message (at 5pm on the dot on Friday as well when I thought I'd survived the unsuccessfuls going out on that day). I didn't think the interview had gone extremely badly, which is kind of a shame because I am not sure where I could improve if I applied again, although I also found myself spaced out by the end (can't actually remember any of the questions from the last station. Perhaps I just sat there and stared into space!).

    Your trust will contact your references in a couple of months' time, it took the National School a while last year to get all the info out to the right people so my boss (who I'd met before when I arranged to visit the lab I now work in before applying) actually had an email from me telling her I'd been offered the position before she got any official confirmation. I'd let your current employer know you've been offered a job elsewhere soon, but don't hand in your notice officially until you've received an official offer of employment from your trust. You don't have to start on 1st September, I started on the 7th last year & know people who started later!

    Basically once the offers have been accepted, the rest of the application process is completed by the individual trusts.
