We're more like a family, really – we know how each other works and we feed off each other’s experiences. There are lots of career progression opportunities and, if you’re newly qualified, you'll always be assigned a mentor. One thing that really sets us apart is that you still see staff holding the patient’s hand here. That’s special to me.”
