The latest edition of the Guide to house jobs in West Yorkshire, compiled by the local BMA junior doctors committee (0113 230 4417) rates medical and surgical posts in all of the local hospitals. The guide pulls no punches as it describes the nitty gritty of rotas, workload intensity and mess facilities in each of the hospitals. It's an admirable document, not only enabling prospective house officers to make informed decisions about their choice of post, but providing a spur for managers to improve conditions.
