  1. Ειναι απίστευτο ποσο αχαριστος μπορει να ειναι ο Ελληναρας. Πριν ενα χρονο (λογικα πριν ερθεις ακομα Αγγλια) ρωτησες κατι και σου απαντησα (ουτε σου την ειπα οτι σου εδωσα κανενα δικαιωμα για να βγαλεις ολο το κομπλεξισμο σου εδω μεσα) - και με ευχαριστησες. Λιγοτερο απο χρονο μετα - πεταγεσαι σαν αλεξιπτωτιστης να μου επιτεθεις προσωπικα και να μου πεις οτι: 1. Με γαμησαν στον Φ1 (δε ξερω πισω απο ποια γωνια με παρακολουθούσες but they really didnt - αλλα δε τη παλευα για προφανεις λογους) 2. Λεω πιπες (νο κομεντ) 3. ειμαι φωστηρας (γιατι οπως βοηθηθηκα και εγω εδψ απο εδω μεσα, προσπαθω να ανταποδωσω) 4. λεω μαλακιες (νο κομεντ Νο 2) Επαρχεσαι επισης μετα να πεις οτι. 5. Ειμαι αυτοανακηρυγμενος ηγετης (Νο κομεντ Νο 3) 6. Κανω μπουλινκ (ημαρτον), . Και φυσικα μετα συμβουλευεις προφανως λογω της μεγαλης σου εμπειριας για χειρουργαρες και πως να αποκτησει καποιος training number. Δε θελω να σχολιασω τιποτα απο τα παραπανω, ο καθενας μπορει να τα δει και να κρινει. Σου ευχομαι καλη επιτυχια σε αυτο που κανεις και ευχομαι να συμπεριφερεσαι στους ανθωπους γυρω σου καλυτερα απο τη καφριλα που βγαζεις κρυμμένος πισω απο ενα πληκτρολογιο.
  2. I have helped dozens of junior doctors in this forum. PMs / emails etc. As II have been constantly advising people to start as FY1 as the perfect stepping stone to start in UK I think that this interesting post is directed to me. I do not know why you are behaving like that - but your behavior is certainly not appropriate for here. I have reached a point in my life that I am way too busy to keep answering - however i kept doing as I felt obliged to do it because I was supported when I first started in UK. Maybe its time for the new generation to take over. I hope that they will follow simple principles (just help base on your experience and do not use inflammatory / rude / plain moronic posts to justify their presence here) Its not great to decide to stop because someone decided to speak like that hidden behind a nickname and a keyboard. But so be it. Good luck to everyone!
  3. you do not need CESR if you have a CCT from Greece. CESR is for doctors who are in UK in non training posts that can achieve equivalent of CCT via a very long process. There are specialties that are really struggling with recruitment of consultants (ED, Pediatrics, some medical specialties) and getting a consultant job in these is very easy. So apart from having qualifications and be good at your job etc sometimes it is down to how desperate thy are to fill a consultant rota gap...
  4. So as I said this is from NHSP - which works as locum agency. This is not foundation programme - not even equivalent and they say its currently tested with aim to reduce external locums. I would be very cautious to advise people to sign up for something like that...
  5. A simple google search failed to reveal any "getaway programme" websites in NHS. Unless you are talking about a locum agency (again nothing that i could find in google) In any case please provide some sort of evidence otherwise your post seems to be extremely suspicious of scam / spam. Thank you.
  6. Have you tried to speak directly to GMC? What have they told you? They have been generally very understanding in general with Greek bureaucratic nonsense...
  7. Αν καποιος ενδιαφερεται για νευροχειρουργικη ας κοιταξει το απαρακάτω... The Department of Neurosurgery at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford is recruiting Junior Clinical Fellows for 2019-2020. Applicants must be interested in joining the neurosurgery team and working at the level of an ST1. Oxford runs a busy neurosurgery unit providing a comprehensive service including neuro-oncology, skull base, spine, vascular, paediatrics and functional neurosurgery. Although the JCF is not an official training role, we will train you. We will provide operative experience and an educational curriculum including anatomy and surgical skills teaching. We will also be running again our series on applying for an ST1 national training number. Last year this series helped four of our previous Senior House Officers secure their NTN. We have two JCF programmes available this year: 1. Neurosurgery (12-months) 2. Neurosurgery (4-months), spinal surgery (4-months) and trauma surgery (4-months) αν καποιος ενδιαφερεραι ας ερθει σε επαφη μαζι μου
  8. Oh then you should have be more specific! If you are already in FY1 then you will be fine. They will ask you things from your daily practice and as FY1 you know that if you are worried / unsure - you escalate...
  9. εξαρταται... Αν ειναι πολλα τα ποστς συνηθως ηταν με διαφορα stations: clinical, cv etc... Αν ειναι ενα-δυο ποστ, το πιο πιθανο να ειναι consultants from the relevant specialties σε ενα station only με ερωτησεις απο ολα αυτα. Γενικα ειναι χαλαρο το environment but i remember how stressed i was going to these interviews while working as FY1. Για ερωτησεις να περιμενεις να σε ρωτησουν για το CV sou, για research / audits που εχεις κανει κτλ. Για clinical they may ask anything - there is no restriction - but normally they ask about how would you deal an emergency or a difficult situation (a mistake you have made et5c). Να περιμενεις consultants to ask relevant to their specialities questions. So if the post has eg respiratory rotation expect questions about COPD/Asthma exacerbation. Καλή επιτυχία!!
  10. I dont know how you can advise anything - when currently there is no agreement in the horizon and everything is fluid. As a general rule - if you are thinking of UK - hurry - cause if / when Brexit happens - it going to be much more difficult / time and money confusing to come here.
  11. depends what you were doing isnt it? Preparing for board exams, preparing for moving to UK - GMC registration etc. Noone really looks at it unless it is a very big gap
  12. Noone knows and it may take few years till the dust settles... (provided that Brexit happens in the end)
  13. An elective will give you a flavour of what it is to be on the job in NHS. With all its good and bad moments. It will not boost your CV (noone really cares about them) but it may help you for your first interview - having woalked into a NHS ward before (even as an elective medical student). Maybe you get to meet some people that maybe they will help you in the future - but this is certainly not guaranteed. Things you need to do to boost your CV: presentations, publications, audits, teaching experience, managerial experience etc
  14. most these days do online revision with questions as far as i know most popular is pastest https://www.pastest.com/ but i think they are plenty out there and its worth having a look around...
