Foundation Doctor's Guide to East Anglia
East Anglia foundation school stretches from the tip of Norfolk at King’s Lynn to the Suffolk east coast at Great Yarmouth, and south towards London around Welwyn Garden City & Stevenage. It has a nice mix of DGHs stretching from just beyond the M25 to Norfolk & Sussex, and tertiary hospitals including Addenbrooke’s (Cambridge) and Papworth (one of the biggest cardiology centres in the UK).

A Doctor’s View
“I spent my F1 & F2, in a small, well supported and very friendly DGH, Bedford Hosptial. Initally I chose it so I could commute from London, only an hour éach way. But soon, I got fed up with the commute and decided to stay in Bedford. This was probably one of the best decisions I had made and I stayed with a few other foundation doctors. After exploring the surrounding area, inital pre-conceptions of Bedford Hospital were quickly forgotten about. The beautiful countryside, with lovely walks and pubs made Bedford a delightful area.
Road transport is relatively good around Bedford – close to London with the M25, M1, A1 & M11. But unfortunately in most of Norfolk & Suffolk there is a distinct lack of motorways. Trains however run throughout the region, going into Kings Cross, London.”
