Ask a robot anything about life as a junior doctor in the NHS (PROTIP: It's shit). You may have heard about us striking for the first time in 30 years.
>>
at least you can strike, here in Malta, our union has no power.

nurses push us around, the administration bullies us, and we have no protection for doing our best for what is essentially a thankless job that ruins your life.

True. I think our government was astounded at the resistance they have seen to their proposed new contract. Historically, we've been the same but the amount of anger has finally bubbled over and we've found our balls.

Glad I don't work in the private sector in some respects. But at the same time we're not as sheltered from the economy as people believe. We've had widespread, ongoing pay freezes and reducing pensions. But dat security tho.

can doctors be robots?
>>
>>25747885
No, but I've slept with a few nurses, one pharmacist and a radiographer.

I live on site, so a bit of flirting at work leads to "oh you live in the accommodation, what's it like?"
"You can come see it if you like" etc etc

The amount of sexual tension in hospital is palpable and nurses are always up for some crazy flirting.

No, but that's not what we're asking for. We're asking to not have a 30% paycut based on poorly thought out contracts which will increase our anti-social working hours and remove safeguards for excessive working.

just came back from a 24 hour work day:
I challenge you to work for more than 16 hours and remain on your feet and do that for the rest of your life.

Also: Teachers earn more, and they get weekends, summer and Christmas off.
>>
>>25748140
>>25748175
Lmao if you don't think I don't work weekends and nights already. 80 hour weeks is pretty common in my job, as are 72 hour on-calls.

Also frequently work 12 day stretches for ~13hrs/day.

Also, what are you going to do if you fuck up as a chef? Oh no, I burnt a pizza. I'd better cook another.
>>
>>25748175
you cannot seriously compare being a chef and taking life or death decisions that can cost you your career, constantly.

YOU THIEVING CUNTS ARE STEALING MONEY FROM EVERYONE'S TAXES AND THEN HAVE THE FUCKING CHEEK TO GO ON STRIKE!!!! REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

>>25748196

I've worked a 24 hour shift in a kitchen before, and so do many chefs.. And unlike you cunts we actually do physical work not just sit around and drink coffee. You're right about teachers though, those cunts are overpaid.

you've never seen orthopaedic surgery: there is a reason why it's mostly men, and that is because you need to put in muscle.

I'm an anaesthetist/intensivist myself, which is mostly hands on. Go ahead and run up and down the stairs for half an hour: That's what a CPR feels like.

You have a very warped idea of what being a medic is like: We are not all GPs sitting at a clinic desk (and even they have to do house visits in dodgy neighbourhoods).

Do you use drugs? I would say about 90% of chefs who work at high end / busy restaurants are on speed.

>>25748423

My point is the junior doctors are paid well and are only going on strike because unions are cunts. Now, I'm comparing being a chef because they do more 'work' and get paid much less, and don't do on strike like cunts.
>>
>>25748460
yeah but who cares. your only a chef.

I'm not a chef any more, dumb cunt.

>>25748489

I remember the junior sous chef I used to work with in a big hotel was earning 3.50 per hour after he worked out his hours/salary.

>Also try doing a lumbar puncture on a confused guy at 4am in the morning

Try cooking for a restaurant full of people after sleeping 2-3 hours per night and doing 6 x 18 hour shifts in a row.
>>
>>25748545

Yes they deserve good pay, and that's exactly what they get. Going on strike and letting people die is pure cunt like behavior. I can honestly say if I was a jnr doctor I would not go on strike, and would be going out of my way to condemn the cunts who are.

No, but there are plenty of dishes that can cause an allergic reaction if you don't pay attention or you can under-cook something and make someone very ill.

Absolute government propaganda bait.

Emergency services are covered 24/7. Also doctors were not arguing for more pay they are arguing for not doing more time for less pay.

I hear junior doctor thrown around a lot. Im a US med student. Is that junior doctor crap the same as our residency training.

And to clarify I think across the board a lot of people from chefs to doctors need to be paye a little bit better.

>And who is going to deal with that?

You, dumbfuck. For the 10th time in this thread, I'm not a chef anymore. I make very good money (much better than junior doctors) from home, I don't have to work day and night like you and then bitch and cry about it.

>Are my fries ready yet?

>The part where you start talking about your hours as if they are equal to that of a dr.

I know my (old) job was longer hours and harder work, I know a few junior doctors and dated 2.

>still mad he has to put his hands up arses
>>
>>25748667
The supposed equality between chefs and doctors is implicit in the use of an analogy between them, to be honest. The fact is that junior doctors provide an incredibly valuable service at great personal expenditure and the government's ill-thought out proposal to extend their hours and reduce their pay is an insult. Only someone without understanding of their own worth could accept this without complaint.
>>
>>25747593
Maybe you're just retarded to not bail out of that career choice as you went thru all the schooling?

Best goy.
>>
>>25748735
Well state side you work 3 to 6 years at $50,000 (comes to about $35,000 after tax) when you are doing your training (residency). After that you become a big boy doctor and start making between 200k for a gp and 400k for specialists. Private practice and more advanced specialty earns even more.

Now with that said, you tend to work 10 to 12 hour days in most of it and tis usually a bitch. Also malpractice insurance takes a good $20k.

Working in england for such a tiny salary just defeats the purpose for anyone to even go to medschool, like, its so much better at that point to just toil with anything else and claim government benefits or plain MOVE to any country anywere.
>>
>>25748754
I slam my dick with a hammer 24/7! It's hard work and longer hours than a dr. They have no right to complain!

Face it. Your role in society is of LITTLE WORTH. Nobody cares about the hours of some grease pit worker compared to the people who will keep your old ass healthy when you come crawling to them ridden with disease.

Many doctors probably will if this proposal goes through, honestly, and it'll certainly reduce the standard of care you receive. People complain about the NHS often enough already, and the complaints come from the stretched resources. These resources cannot be stretched further without snapping. I understand you are trolling for the sake of trolling, but the truth is the truth, and unless you are outside Britain, this definitely concerns you.

Yea and its not just medicine. my buddy went through chemical engineering at UC irvine and did an internship after, he has a 130k salary that ought to grow to 150k in 5 years. Not to brag, but educated people in science and bussiness have some lucrative carriers and tend to live better lives than their european counterparts. Consider moving to the US med bro, even if you gotta crawl your way.

Also check this out real quick. Even in residency (considering I have no debt) I can get a pretty swank car after saving for a year for the down payment.

I'm a Brit but I'm living in France.

I think the biggest problem the NHS faces is the fact that most doctors time is filled with retarded people who are there for no reason. The "my elbow feels funny" type, and of course drunks and druggies. I would support a fee on stupid NHS visits, and of course cut the wages/size of the management.

Australia would welcome me with open arms pretty easily, usually with relocation expenses.

Canada is apparently a bit trickier and more restrictive in jobs.

If I left the UK it would be to do relief work abroad, probably nothing permanent.

I think the government will cave in the end. Ultimately, they need us more than we need them.

I get depressed every day thinking of how fucked doctors are by the government and insurance companies.

I had the option to go into high-finance and become a wall street thug, but I decided to do medicine and save lives, taking on a huge amount of debt, and I'm going to make practically no money when I finish.

Doctors in UK make 50,000 USD, which is fucking pathetic, I don't see how this can not happen in the US, too.

Doctors can do what they like, but going on strike despite being some of the highest paid for their sector in the world is pure faggotry.
