  • Phil Says

    He says: “I already knew some staff here from my time with the ambulance service and knew it was a place I would enjoy working – everyone is no nice and friendly. I have been supported massively here at Ledbury, not only on a professional level but personally too.  Any training I have asked to do it has been arranged for me.”
