Nurses offered short-term military posts

The Ministry of Defence has started offering short-term military placements to civilian nurses.

The Ministry of Defence has started offering short-term military placements to civilian nurses.

Nurses can work in a field hospital for as little as three months with remuneration packages in the region of 40-50% in excess of equivalent NHS pay.

Recruitment agency Frontier Medical is arranging the placements. Along with nurses in primary health care, Frontier Medical is looking to attract specialists in A&E nursing, Intensive Care and High Dependency.

Former nurse Judy Mason, who is in charge of managing the military nursing requirement at the agency, said that while she did not underestimate the challenges for civilian staff the professional experience afforded personnel in field hospitals is second to none.

She said: 'It has proved an exceptional method for many of the medical professional we've employed to enhance their professional development.'
