Can I have a telephone interview instead of having to personally meet with you?
All candidates have to meet with one of our practicing nurses in order to ensure that we can confirm and verify your work experience. This is part of our application process. We do, wherever possible try to ensure that we meet with you at your convenience and are happy to arrange interviews in your area to minimise any inconvenience to you.

We are bound by the statutory recruitment and care standards regulations and in order to maintain status as a responsible healthcare provider we are legally bound to enforce the training and compliance that the NHS requires.
