Little steps towards the dream
When I was planning to move in to UK, I was not aware of any help group in facebook. We gathered bits and pieces of informations from our seniors, but there were thousand bubbles of questions hidden inside brewing from uncertainty to leave own comfort zone.
With all ifs and buts, we managed to pull through the endeavour of reaching and starting work in NHS. We had no idea how the pay structure was, what to look for before taking up a job, what is relocation fees, how would be the expenditure – we literally had no clue. All I knew was there is a thing called training post and we have to achieve that !
One fine morning, I was browsing the internet to gather as much information about ST3 as I could with my friend Mouni Faria and got a website called http://www.st3recruitment.org.uk. This website pretty much explains everything you need to know about training program. We were quite unpleasantly surprised that how come we had no idea about this website, we could have brought all the necessary documents from bangladesh before we moved in. That was the day we planned to start this group. Eventually, Rashad Riasat Haque Bhaia and Mahjabeen Rahman Rini apu offered their kindest support and we started the group 1 yr back.
I believe in finding solution of the problem, rather than analysing the root of it.When I see hospital full of doctors from other nationalities, I felt we are outnumbered not because of talent, mainly as a result of lack of information, decisive attitude, apprehension to move into a new place and most importantly, lack of appropriate guidance to get the head start.
This is now a group of thousands of members with different aspirations but one thing makes us united and that is our urge to help each other in the best possible way with all the correct information we have. I thank every single person wholeheartedly who is asking question and those who are coming up with extremely helpful solutions.
Thank you so very much for being with us. On a positive note, lets change our views because together we conquer ❤
