When did you get your rotasWatch
I will soon be starting as an f1 at a trust in Scotland and was wondering how long before you started did you receive your rotas and any info on what your banding was going to be
Chase it repeatedly, and if you need say x day off, tell them then if they do not send the rota and it becomes a dispute you have written evidence that you told them and it was them who broke the contract, not you.

I've seen people get rotas as little as 2-weeks before they start.
We kicked up a stink about ruined life plans and in fairness they tried to help and honour stuff where they could. But it was a complete nightmare - for us and for them.
Don't forget, it takes a very long time to change the names in the columns of a rolling rota on excel. You can't rush these things. Also it's not like doctors rotating every 4-6 months is a regular, predictable occurrence, so you need to factor that in too.
