A Doctor’s Experience
“For me, the Severn Deanery is an exciting mix of vibrant city life, historic towns and beautiful coast and countryside. We take trips hiking in Wales, surfing in Cornwall, and walking/pubbing in the Cotswolds. On other days, we visit events like the Bath Christmas market, rugby matches in Cardiff and the Cheltenham races.
I’m living in Bristol and currently commuting to Weston General Hospital. Bristol is the perfect sized city to feel at home and still have enough pubs, bars and cafes to try somewhere new each time. The city has distinct regions offering a mixture of culture, sport, music and history. I love it.
Bristol’s hospitals have a great reputation for learning and experience. Every job has been supportive and social. They have strong links to Bristol University and offer good opportunities in education and academia. Severn in general is also great at encouraging taster experiences at work.”
