It depends a little on what grade and specialty you're talking about. I'd hazard a guess that OUH and Royal Berks are the most popular. Wexham Park (which is the half of Frimley Health in the Oxford deanery; Frimley Park itself is in South Thames/KSS) is not generally hugely popular, but does have proximity to London in its favour.

Hey thanks for your response, I meant for the Foundation programme. I'm thinking of Wexham Park, what other hospitals would come with that if frimley park is part of south thames?

What do you mean? If you get allocated Oxford FS, but then get a job at "Frimley Health" trust within it, I'm pretty sure that would actually mean you'll be at Wexham. You won't usually cross over into STFS territory.

I don't know if there are any jobs which are just at Wexham for both years, so there's a fair chance you'd get sent elsewhere for F2.

My impression was OUH >> RBH > Stoke Mandeville >Milton Keynes/Wexham Park.

South Thames.
For FY1, a lot of people I did foundation with found the JRH really undersupported. I've heard, far and away, the best things about Royal Berks - everyone there raved about it. Oxford >> Reading in terms of places to live though definitely.

Oh yeah I meant popularity not how good it is. Teaching hospitals often don't get great reviews.

Thanks for clarifying this. Is it possible to only have rotations at Wexham, or will I possibly be required to work at e.g. stoke mandeville / MK as well?

Don't know, I'm afraid. I think most foundation jobs in the region are in different hospitals for each year, not sure if there are any which are all the same these days. I didn't do foundation here, and am a senior trainee in a specialty without much day to day contact with foundation docs, so don't know much details about rotation options, unfortunately.

When I did FY there a few years ago there were no such jobs. Can't say it would be impossible via swaps, but very very difficult certainly.
