Yesterday we found out our job allocations - and as of August I am going to be a junior doctor in the North West region of the country!
Earlier this academic year I decided that I wanted to stay in Liverpool, so when I applied to jobs in October I put the North West as my top choice. Yesterday I was told that I had got it, and I was so pleased. We now all have to apply to hospitals within that region, so I will put Liverpool hospitals as my top choice.
Last night, of course, we decided to celebrate. As my friend Kelly said, "You only get your first job as a doctor once!" - and how could I argue with that?! So we joined a group of friends down at Revolution by the docks and had a lovely meal and some cocktails.
I'm so excited for what the future holds, and I can't wait for more northern adventures with my fellow doctor friends.
The best way to predict the future is to invent it.
