"I’ve had experience in orthopaedics previously and I feel practice has come on immensely from what I remembered. The team are a very good nursing team - they really care about their work at all levels, are very organised and come to together every morning to plan the day.

The bank really suits me as it is a very mature way of working - you are responsible for managing your own hours which allows me to have flexibility which is very
important to me as I care for a disabled family member.
