Hello Mercy Friends

I am looking for a travel buddy!

I have been accepted for a position as a ward nurse from the 1st of September 2019 - 18th of January 2020.

Anyone traveling from New Zealand from the 1st if September who would like a travel pal?

I promise great snacks and even better banter!

Love Leah

    Hi Leah. I’m also starting Sept 1st but flying out of London. I’m from NZ and going over as a Physio. Janet.

    Ok sorry just realised I start 9th September. But will definitely catch up.


    Hi Leah, Where in NZ are you from? I'm from Mount Maunganui-Tauranga but working in Australia at present.

    My rotation commences December to March. Hopefully I will meet you on board.

    Blessings, Permila

    Hi Leah,

    How exciting. I have only just started my application process for next year. Im an ICU nurse so that particular position isnt till Aug 2020, hence giving me lots of time to organise myself :) I am looking at volunteering for approx 12 weeks, so be great to get your perspective - keep us updated on how you go.

    Have a great time.
