I'm hoping to develop this blog into a website where non consultant hospital doctors (NCHDs) working in Ireland can come together to share their experiences and discuss any issues or problems affecting them in their professional lives.

NCHDs are a group who face unique professional difficulties. We are continuously on temporary contracts and we often feel that these contracts are not honoured by our employers. It can be difficult for individuals to address problems with their employers and given the huge turnover of NCHD staff each January and July it is difficult even for a group of doctors to work on the many issues which affect NCHDs.

If anybody has a contribution they would like to make to this blog, please email me at
