Sussex aims to recruit 150 extra health visitors

  • Comment

As part of the national health visitor strategy, the NHS in Sussex has launched a recruitment drive for new health visitors.

The primary care trust cluster is looking to recruit more than 150 new health visitors in Sussex over the next five years.

There are currently 210 health visitors working with families across Sussex.

Qualified nurses or midwives who are interested are being encouraged to apply for a fully-funded 12 month (or 24 months part time) degree course at one of four universities around the South East Coast region. They will be paid while they train.

NHS South East Coast regional nurse Sue Webb said: “There has never been a better time to train or return to be a health visitor. We are offering fully funded career development opportunities for eligible people who have a passion for giving children the best start in life.”

The strategic health authority has set an overall target of recruiting 434 extra health visitors across Kent, Medway, Surrey and Sussex.
