Your community

Intro to Your Community

"Great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people"

            Steve Jobs  (co-founder of Apple Inc.)

We feel its important to create a community that we feel connected to, whether you work from home, remotely or in one of our clinics.

Therefore, we encourage you to attend and get involved with as many of our events and activities to help you feel part of the wider team.

Competitions

 

We hold great competitions throughout the year that everyone can get involved in.

  • Our annual photography competition, gives you the chance to submit your photos for inclusion in the Company calendar. In 2019, our volunteer judges had a very hard task of picking just 13 photos for inclusion in the calendar from a fantastic amount of photos entered.
