I ended up ringing the £1 a minute line and they were really helpful. Are you going to be working for SDHB then? I'm going to be in Invercargill at Southland Hospital starting 2nd March.

Thumbs up Re: Rough idea how long Visa takes once ITA returned

hello yes I will be working for SDHB based at the Lakes hospital Queenstown as Lead Midwifery Carer any complications go to either Dunedin or Invacargill so will be travelling. Have you looked at the 10day winter festival (July) in Queenstown looks great fun. My partner snowboards so looking for company on the slopes if any of you guys interested. Thanks for your help will e-mail my CO today. Hope we can meet up at some point.

Might need a snowboard teacher!! Haven't skied since school but its one of the things I'd love to get back into. I'll keep my ears open for a new Lead Midwifery carer starting after me! Good luck getting your visa in time, mine was processed really quickly (I think) and although I haven't got it back yet I booked flights as soon as I had email confirmation we'd been approved.
