The department is involved in several trials.

West Mid Hospital is located in Isleworth. There is a canteen, costa coffee and WHSmith in the main building. The pubs or restaurants are not particularly close by and so it is more challenging for trainees to socialise together within the area.
Closest rail stations are Syon Lane or Isleworth (Southwest trains from Waterloo via Putney) – both about 10-12 minutes walk from the hospital.
Trains run every 15 minutes in peak hours.
Fast trains run to Twickenham or Richmond mainline stations.
Bus 110/267 from Twickenham takes about 15mins to the hospital, or H37 from Richmond takes 20mins (both traffic dependent).
Closest under ground stations are Gunnersbury Station (District Line) - Bus 267 takes about 20 minutes from there to the hospital, or Hounslow East (Piccadilly Line) – bus 117 takes about 15 minutes to the hospital.
Bus route 267 runs from Hammersmith to the hospital (40 minutes, traffic dependent). Other buses that service the hospital include 110 from Twickenham, 117 from Staines, 481 from Kingston, H28 from Cranford, H37 from Hounslow, 235 from Sunbury, 237 from Shepherds Bush.
There is staff parking on site for approximately £50 per month, however there may be a 3 month wait for a permit. It is also possible to park for free in some neighbouring streets if you arrive early. The pay and display car park costs £6.80/12 hours.
The rota is a 10 week rolling rota. There are approximately 5200 deliveries per year and there is excellent obstetric training here.
The registrar rota is 2 tier and there is a resident Consultant on call every night so trainees are very well supported with excellent opportunities to get work based assessments signed off. Daily ELCS lists are performed by SHOs and Consultants.
There is a decent amount of emergency gynae experience available for trainees with a busy early pregnancy unit and A&E department. However, there are limited major elective gynaecology lists.
The rota, including leave, for the entire Obs and Gynae department is published weeks in advance on Medirota (available as a phone app.)
