Hear from a HCA - Jessica Khalaf

"My favourite thing about working at St Andrew's is Feeling like part of a team and working together. 

I was also really pleased when I discovered the Aspire programme as I was not sure if I would be able to study nursing otherwise.

I have quickly progressed and am now in my final year of university. I will be working as a mental health nurse in a years’ time, which is incredibly exciting!"
