    I am a recent podiatry graduate and applied for a job with the store shuropody. I was told due to me being a graduate I would get paid less which is fair enough. However I have recently learnt that on my first ever working podiatry day after leaving uni I will be the only podiatrist working in the shop and the patient books are fully booked for that day. I am unsure of what to do because I feel as a new graduate I am inexperienced and unable to cope with the demand of patients with no podiatry mentor or any podiatrists help for me to turn to. I do not understand that if the company shuropody understands that I am a graduate and pays me less that I would then get treated as an experienced podiatrist.

    Please could you tell me your opinions on this matter.

    Dear newgradpod,
    This does not sound at all fair or reasonable.

    If you are an SCP Member I would contact the both the Industrial Relations Adviser and also the Professional Practice Advisor as to where you stand.

    If you are a member of the Institute then contact Head Office immediately and seek advice. If you a member of another professional body then do likewise.

    Good luck

    I am a senior pod at shuropody and this is not suppose to have happened .
    When you did your clinical induction with the company you were told that your book would not be booked up.
    You were supposed to have gaps during the day as this would ease you into your new job.

    If you need any help contact me.

    Thank you
