I was in the chemist's this morning and my eye fell on a leaflet inviting people to send their details to the Local Health Board if they wish to have access to an NHS dentist as a new dental care company is shortly to be offering its services around here. (The idea of sending in a form is to avoid the politically embarrassing queues filmed some months ago in mid-Wales, of course, but I digress.)
There was a website address on the form, which I looked at tonight and, whilst browsing, I chanced upon a vacancy for an assistant planning officer. So I thought I would take a look - only idle curiosity, you understand. Below is the job description:
Wrexham Local Health Board is looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic person to work as part of the LHB Planning Team.
The Post: An exciting opportunity has arisen to work in LHB Development and Performance Directorate at the Wrexham Local Health Board.

Well, I'm not a serious contender for the job, but what I would really love to know is.............
What the hell does it mean???
