I am so happy I met Monika on my way!... first she helped me to get my HCPC registration done, by organising

my placements, but then she even helped to find the job for me!

I can't be more thankful for everything she did for me. Really, really amazing , understanding and sensitive

person . Thank you so much for all your advice. You can be sure she will never leave you alone when you need

help. I really do very highly recommend Monika Milczarek and Monroe!

"Since I came in to the UK I was trying to get registered with HCPC. Unfortunately after very long process HCPC has decided that, in their opinion, I do not have enough experience in respiratory. I have been trying to contact different clinics and different people. No luck.  Then Monroe Medical appeared on my path. Monika helped me with theoretical preparation and then in finding the right placement. Everything was well organized. After completing the course I got registered within 4 weeks. I recommend Monroe Medical to everyone who struggles with HCPC requirements.
