Hi Shaz, I'm also an RN, moved to NZ over 4 years ago & love it. If you'd like to know anything at all just shout. Will you be working at HVDHB?

Yes, ive got my start date for 24/1/11. Can't believe it was simple!!

Are you RGN Boopy? In welly or else where? I've never even been to NZ but my bro is there and I knew I wanted to see NZ so just though now was the best time to make the leap!

Liverpool is a fab city, full of culture. But now it is time for biggest and beter anventures!! xx

You gooners need to meet up with a few Hull City fans and talk about our Premiership years (both of them!)

Been here a year now and work in Tawa (Grenada North). Sure it'll be a great move for all, we love it here.
