“MPFT is a wonderful place to work …… like a family. Access to senior management has never been an issue and support from Medical Staffing has been fantastic. Coming towards the end of my training in London, I was offered a job in the same Trust but decided to move to MPFT (formerly SSSFT) and didn't look back. Both Staffordshire and Shropshire are great places to raise your family with some of the best state schools in the country.....”
