East Midlands trust launches recruitment drive for 140 nurses


Trusts need to get creative and look at ways they recruit and retain staff. This means flexible working patterns and tailoring contracts to suit personal requirements. It is simply old fashioned and out of touch for managers to think they can get nurses to work on full time, internal rotational contracts nowadays with the cost of childcare and the amount of jobs available for nurses, not to mention agencies paying higher rates. Going abroad is a short term solution too. We need to start valuing the nurses we have as 2016 forecasts a 'perfect storm' of retiring nurses and not enough to plug the warned! Goodwill is running thin
