There are excellent educational facilities in the area and, when compared to other regions, house prices are reasonable. You will experience the best of both in Somerset, the countryside and the cosmopolitan - there is truly something for everyone!
We have just officially merged with Yeovil District Hospital making us one of the largest UK NHS providers - this is a really exciting time to join as we span our services across the whole of Somerset.
