Day 1 for F1

Welcome and good luck to all our F1 doctors starting at East Cheshire Trust, Macclesfield today.  We look forward to meeting you all later and hope that you will settle in very soon.  The Staff Library is here to help you with anything from ‘how do I get an Athens account’ to ‘where can we get a coffee’ – the answer in both cases of course, is the Library – open 24/7.
