Foundation Doctors Accommodation Watch

Anonymous #1
Report Thread starter 4 weeks ago
With the UKFPO allocations being released on the 7th of March, I was wondering how students go about sorting out accommodation when moving to a new deanery? I'm hoping to go to West Yorkshire and I know that there are usually FB groups for it but are there any means to find other new foundation doctors? When do people start looking for housing as well?

I would say a Facebook group is the main way. There were 20+ posts of people asking if anyone wanted to join a house share etc. I can't quite remember the timeline but I think it was after we found out which hospitals we were in, so April time.

It might be worth waiting until a 'West Yorkshire' specific group has been made + you know which hospitals you're going to be working at. You won't know if you have West Yorkshire for about a week post the general UKFPO allocations.
