“After 7 years in primary care, I decided to move into referral nursing to develop my skills further. I started at Anderson Moores in July 2019 as a multi-disciplinary nurse, which involves rotating through all the departments. My favourite departments to work in are wards and surgery. I have now become a Senior Wards Nurse and Wards Lead." Leila Hallaji – RVN
