Cornwall Partnership Foundation Trust

Cornwall Partnership nurse recruitment drive

Cornwall Partnership Foundation Trust is spending £0.5m to expend its nursing workforce.

The mental health trust is seeking to employ up to 19 new nurses. Following a national advertising drive, the trust received around 75 applications, leading to a specialist recruitment day in Bodmin last month.

The creation of the new posts follows the recruitment of 23 nurses to the trust in 2012 and the creation of 15 new posts for primary care dementia practitioners earlier this year to help people living with dementia.

Sharon Linter, the trust’s executive nurse and director of quality and governance, said: “Our commitment to recruiting new nurses means we’re bringing fresh ideas and ways of thinking into the trust each year.

“This then has a positive impact on the quality of care our patients receive.”

  • Investing in high calibre staff will bring positive results and benefits to patients. Good to see an area with a positive and innovative ambitious plan

  • shame the same Trust lost nearly all its Dementia Liaison specialist to other providers due to poor staff and service management!

    Is it me or is the recruitment drive spawned by the advent of Admiral nurses in the same area a serious challenge to the current provider's service delivery contract? - who says competition doesn't bring about a change in direction!
