    We are currently based in Southwest Bristol, and in Spring 2022 our new hospital (for more information click here)  will open close to the M49 motorway in Avonmouth (North of the city, with excellent travel links to Wales, the Southwest, Central and Southern England).  This is a beautiful and affordable area of the country in which to work, catering for city and country-lovers alike.  Highcroft has a very strong team spirit and cases are managed in a collegiate manner.  Quality of life for staff is very important with full-time specialists typically working a 4-day week; part-time and flexible working practice can also be accommodated.  A competitive remuneration package is available for the right candidate.
