    Does anyone happen to know how competitive the hospitals in this deanery are? in particular - Bedford, Luton, Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, Hinchingbrooke

    Would you be assigned at the same hospital for F1 and F2?

    Thanks

    East anglia isn't usually too competitive, as it's so spread out - the main appeal is that the parts closer to London are, well... close to London! :P You're likely to be in one hospital for F1 and another for F2 and they come in particular combinations, but I know there are some jobs where they're the same hospital for both years and if you were desperate to stay put you could rank those first. Stevenage and Luton also fall within North Central Thames so they'll have trainees from EoE and NCT, the NCT trainees will generally do a year out and then a year in London. The competition data should be available on the FPAS website if you look it up.

    The spread out thing can be a problem especially if you're low ranking and want to be nearer to London. You can just as likely end up in Kings Lynn in far off Norfolk as Hertfordshire!
