I applied for a IDT from Surrey to East London.
I’ve gotten Queens and King Georges which from where I live are still a 50-1hour commute (which is not awful but not great).
However, I’ve had a look at some other foundation colleagues feedback and there seems to be a general consensus to avoid the Romford area?

However, I haven’t spoken to anyone directly. Both hospitals are rated “required improvement” and there seems to be poor colleague satisfaction.

Anyone worked here who would be able t shed some light? Is it truly horrible to work there?

If it helps at all - I spoke to a fellow FY1 who was there as a medical student, he did neurosurgery and said it was great.
I'd also like to find some actual reviews from FY1s and FY2 who did worked there properly

TSR isn't really populated with junior junior doctors like it was years ago. There are quite a few doctors around still, but we are usually more senior (registrars and above).

I would recommend going over to the dark side r/juniordoctorsuk if you wanted to find more juniors there.

This is not super helpful but I had quite a few colleagues who worked in Queens/ Kings and said it was pretty terrible - BUT having said that, lots of hospitals get these 'reputations' and then there are always good things to find about them, and a good team/ fun colleagues can make such a difference. Good luck with FY1.
