Nurses' Day kicks off recruitment drive for nursing staff

  • Comment

Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust used International Nurses’ Day to announce a £1m recruitment drive.

The investment over the next 12 months will go into increasing nurse staffing levels at the trust’s Arrowe Park and Clatterbridge hospitals.

It follows a £1.5m investment in extra nursing staff last year.

“This investment represents our recognition of the crucial role nursing staff play in delivering safe, quality care and the best possible patient experience,” said the trust’s deputy chief nurse Gaynor Westray.

The trust has also pledged to help existing nursing staff develop their skills.

“There is a real sense of community amongst our nurses, who not only provide excellent patient care but also support each other,” said Naomi Holder, associate director of nursing at Arrowe Park.

“With this investment we will now be able to bring in additional nurses who can offer skills of benefit to our current teams.”
