    I read somewhere on the forum that not all junior dr jobs are banded and that banded jobs involve "more medicine". What do they mean by that? Do non-banded jobs involve more admin work?

    All my F1 jobs are banded 1B. Apart from salary what does that mean?

    Banding means more antisocial hours. This usually means on-call, so you are seeing more acute situations and learning to deal with them yourself, whereas in the day job you're often doing admin and usually have some sort of backup as an F1.

    1B means you will be doing evenings and weekends, possibly nights depending on your trust. Not as many as if you were on a 1A rota but they can still be quite tough jobs!
