They will undertake a share of the administrative duties associated with the care patients, the running of the neurology department and the directorate.

Applicants are invited to make contact at both sites for further information or to arrange a visit to WPH, in particular so that discussion can be facilitated with the clinical lead of their preferred sub-speciality at NHNN- this could have practical implications for details of the indicative timetable.
