This is my job that I am leaving – I have worked in this post for 15 months and am going to work as an RA in a dementia research group to gain different but hopefully complimentary experience. The role offers excellent experience of neuropsychology, MDT working and community rehabilitation. If anyone has any questions about the role, please feel free to PM or telephone me at the centre (01884 836220) for a chat.

Good luck to all the applicants!
