I have a brief reprive. The people who are running the MMC have said that junior doctors like myself who have jobs at the moment will be able to continue working in our current positions "while we progress through round 2."
Reading between the lines, this means that I won't be forced to sign on in six weeks' time, but witll have probably until the middle to end of October to try and get a job. Obviously, I'm really relieved by this because it means that I can continue working and treating patients for a while longer and have a bit longer to try and save up some money to tide me over if I don't get job this year. It's one thing less to worry about.
This is the only piece of good news that I've had from the MMC people.
