“I'm a great believer in team away days. They help us to reflect on how we practice as a team, how as a team we deliver our service and how each of us support each other in doing that.”

“The heart of my working day is seeing people and making sure they have a good experience of coming here. There are many things we can’t control but making their experience the best it can be when they visit the clinic is one we can. And it’s magical. It really is.”

It was by chance that I came to Devon. I saw the job advert and applied. I remember coming down on the train from The Midlands to Exeter and suddenly seeing the scenery changing. I thought ‘wow’, this looks like a nice place. I sat the interview, got the job but I wasn’t really sure about moving so far away, but looking back and choosing to live in Devon was the best decision I made. I absolutely feel at home in Devon, everyone is friendly and welcoming and it has a fantastic relaxed atmosphere.
