You will also have an opportunity to talk to our, education department and colleagues from Middlesex University. We will try and accommodate informal visits to clinical areas depending on extent of interest.

We will be assessing and interviewing on the day so if you are interested in working for us, apply today or come along for a visit.

At the open day we are offering exciting opportunities for:
