Foundation Doctor's Guide to North Yorkshire and East Coast
North Yorkshire & East Coast foundation school covers the inland towns of York & Scunthorpe and the sea-side towns of Scarborough, Hull & Grimsby. Hull Royal Infirmary is the main tertiary hospital in the region specialising in cardiothoracics and neurosurgery, alongside York Hospital which also specialises in cardiothoracic surgery. Scunthorpe is a commutable distance from Sheffield & Leeds, and York is commutable from Leeds. Hull has recently been the UK City of Culture, with a large investment into culture and arts, including the Freedom Festival.
Yorkshire & Humber, one of the larger foundation schools, has 3 regions, North Yorkshire & East Coast, South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. Once accepted into the Yorkshire & Humber Foundation School, you have to then rank your regions in order of preference. Then you’re allocated your region (e.g. North Yorkshire and East Coast) for the 2 years for which you have to decide on your rotations
Messly wants to help doctors make evidence-based decisions about their careers. We’ve put together a short guide to the Yorkshire and the Humber Foundation School to help you rank your rotation programmes. Below is a snapshot of hospital ratings and reviews from the Messly community of doctors together with information about the geography of the region.
