Departmental Junior Doctor Forums

Departmental Junior Doctor Forums 

The Junior Doctors Forum (JDF) is a vital component of hospital life here at HGS. Monthly meetings are held where latest news/issues/developments, as well as upcoming social events are discussed and it is a chance for you to represent your specialty or training grade.

The JDF addresses issues relating to all aspects of the working life of junior doctors including working conditions, education and training and social functions within the guise of the doctor’s mess.

If you are not aware of your department holding DJDF, please look at the bottom of the page and if no details avaliable contact your Education Lead.
