Help With Relocation

If you live more than 50 miles away, depending on your band and clinical role, we may be able to make a contribution of up to £3000 to relocation expenses. (The contribution will be repayable if you leave the Trust within 12 months – please ask for more details.)

We know there’s so much to think about when making a decision to relocate, so we have gathered a few resources to help you.
