WHAT IS LIFE LIKE IN LONDON?
London is a buzzing metropolis and one of the urban centers of Europe, with London offering an incredibly diverse collection of mini-towns all in one large city. The hospitals associated with Barts Health are all mainly based in Central and East London. Central London's nightlife, art and cultural scene is fantastic, with endless things to do in a friendly, diverse and welcoming environment. Central London is not largely residential and it would be likely you would seek to locate yourself in East London, the 'cooler' part of London. East London is full of parks, reservoirs, canals, wildlife, sports centres and a strong grass roots sports community for adults and children. East London is the more popular part of London for many whilst also host to much of the more affordable housing. Schools are numerous and range from excellent state schools to high performing private or 'public' schools. You can find the OFSTED reports for schools in the are via their website here: https://reports.ofsted.gov.uk/
With London being the jobs centre of the UK there will be ample job opportunities for spouses relocating with their partners. If you are unsure about your spouses job opportunities do feel free to speak with your IMG Connect consultant to discuss their case.
