Guernsey is a lovely island literally 10km wide with transport links to UK mainland and France.   A safe island for children with excellent state and private schools, there's plenty to do for everyone!  Because of the similarities in requirements to the NHS on UK mainland, this is ideal for consultants who have been contemplating a move but found it difficult to meet entry or professional requirements for other countries.
