Airedale NHS FT - Information for International Staff: Useful Advice
This page contains advice from previous international staff:
The tap water in the UK is safe to drink.
Pack a warm, waterproof coat. You'll need it when you arrive...whatever time of year it is!
Electricity is 240v and the plug sockets are 3 pin.
There is free public wi-fi in the main hospital building
There is a cash machine (ATM) on the top landing in the hospital – just above main reception.
There is also a cash machine at the Co-Op store situated on the main road at the top of the hospital grounds.
When you go shopping all carrier bags are charged at 5p each so it is advisable to take bags with you when possible. Supermarkets sell 'bags for life' which you buy once and reuse each time you visit.
