CMF Junior Doctors' Welcome Scheme


Dr Anita Lavery on the benefits of having a mentor while a junior doctor.

As a junior doctor you will often have to move, whether for a placement or a new job. Relocating is often daunting and full of challenges. Finding a new home, setting up all those direct debits and locating a nice take-away is just the start. There is a new workplace, new colleagues and new 'local procedures' to get used to ... once you have survived the talk about the fire extinguisher colour code! And for the Christian finding a church is a priority.

However, despite all of the business, it can be a lonely time. To help, the CMF Welcome Scheme will put you in touch with a local Christian doctor to support you and help you settle in. Maybe you will just need pointing in the right direction, but people often find the welcome a source of friendship and mentoring at a time they need it most.

If you are moving to a new place, and would like to be welcomed, please let us know your new contact details (including your mobile phone number, and your current hospital) and we'll do the rest!

If you are interested in being a Welcomer yourself, we want to hear from you!
