Get your experience with the NHS and after say 5 years, go to the private sector and earn big bucks

That might be completely wrong and not interesting for you,
but maybe a Job in the IT field?
Your mobility issues would propably not be a problem in that field :)

You have done a lot of things to go back or expand thoughts on. Im thinking of working again but not going to rush into something. Give it some thought,,your not alone on this subject. Its tricky. Exciting though.Well done.

Hi Opal,

You could look for voluntary typing work.


I'm sure given that if you find the right voluntary employer, you can listen to music, to help you concentrate better. I find, that it helps me out.


Best regards.
