I would go for LAT . I have known people give up staff grade posts for LAT. But take in to account other factors including need to move, need to stay away from family before taking this decision.

i would stick with staff grade..if its in the speciality of your choice

what are the prospects with LAT is there any chance of getting into through

if good then i would go ahead and join LAT

maudsle LAT sounds good on your CV

but if it means unemployment or staff garde after 1 year..whats the point

Depends on how long the LAT is for. If it is a short one for 3- 6 months- dump it- if it is for a year- no harm going for it, and applying next year for run through posts- or else go for SG

Huuu Well Done!

Good choice to dump it, LAT is great and SpR-equivalent if it's for 12 months and you have your MRCPsych, surely nothing but disaster if you dump a permanent job just before sitting your exams for a 3-month one...

Pfiuuu

:P
