Lithgow Hospital Recruitment, Rachel

[Rachel – Sonographer/Radiograhper, Medical Imaging, Lithgow Hospital]

Hi my name's Rachel, I'm a Radiographer/Sonographer at the Lithgow Hospital.
It's a great small tight-knit team in a really lovely community.
I moved out here because I love the mountains, the national park and it has been a bonus having such great people to work with every day.

BM Recruitment, Ainslie Hines

[Ainslie Hines – Nurse Unit Manager at Blue Mountains Hospital]

I've worked in this hospital for 20 years.
I have a background in big city hospitals.
Blue Mountains is a smaller hospital, so all of the staff really know each other. It’s got a real family environment.
Working close to home is wonderful. We have very easy parking, pretty much at the door and it’s lovely to be able to give back to our community.
So, I love this hospital.
I care about my community and to be able to grow my career in a supportive environment and to look after my community is a real privilege.
