I applied to Severn, like most people, to work in Bristol. I'm working in Bristol for my F2 which is fantastic but I've only just settled in so I will talk about Taunton where I worked for my F1 I have to admit I'd never even heard of taunton before I got my job results but it turned out to be an absolutely fantastic place to live and work. Musgrove Park hospital is highly rated and deserves all the plaudits it gets. The atmosphere is friendly with plenty of friendly consultants. The mess is brilliant with plenty of socials and extras such as 5 a side on amonday funded by the mess. I'd definitely recommend Taunton and Severn as a deanery.
All the best with your applications.
