Below are some testimonies from our consultants as to why they chose to both train and take consultant jobs in this region

Consultant picture

'My decision to do Rheumatology was fortuitous – great things happen by chance! The reason why I chose East of England was purely because my mum only knows two places in the UK – Cambridge or Oxford. Hence you can imagine my surprise when I was told that I would spend most of my time in Luton! However what a great decision that was. The rotation prepared me for all eventualities as I had the opportunity to see a wide range of pathology, take OOP time to undertake research, learn from great mentors and had relative freedom to choose the area for sub-specialisation. Though the rotation could be over a large geographical area, all my jobs were outlined in advance with focus on easy commuting and sufficient time to plan ahead. All these benefits manifested with final placement at Luton where the department was keen to expand providing consultant job at the right time for me to apply. I'd thoroughly recommend EoE rotation as I feel it complements a wide variety of job interests and provides plenty of opportunities to excel whilst keeping work life balance.’
