Ooo, which Trust/speciality ? (being nosey!). I was a med sec up until recently (was laid off due to budget cuts, staff having to re-apply for their own jobs etc, - don't get me started! ). Do they know you're emigrating? Presumably your family are already there? Hope you haven't got long to wait. Good luck.
