It aims to:
a.) improve the provision of relevant information for junior doctors deciding where to work and train;
b.) collate and publish real-time, online, training feedback – which would otherwise be lost to medical education providers and commissioners;
c.) raise the profile of medical education and training in general, while promoting transparency and innovation; and
d.) provide an opportunity for engagement between junior doctors, and the organisations they work in.
The project achieves these aims by:
a.) Allowing postgraduate medical trainees to submit quantitative ratings and qualitative reviews of their training;
b.) Moderating, collating, and openly publishing these ratings and reviews online at www.juniorreviews.com.
c.) Integrating GMC, CQC, HEE, and Medical Royal College data to provide a holistic view of training quality
d.) Providing Local Education Providers (LEPs) and Local Education & Training Boards (LETBs) with the ability to respond to feedback, and engage with trainees.
The site is currently in open-beta at www.juniorreviews.com.
To-date, it has received >25,000 visits; hosts >7,500 ratings and >600 detailed reviews; and receives >1,000 unique visitors weekly.
