Trusts adopt Big Brother approach to rectruitment

  • Comment

Nursing staff at Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have taken a novel approach to recruitment by using a Big Brother-style diary room to record their thoughts about life on the NHS frontline.

Staff from the trust’s A&E department and Medical Assessment Unit took part in filmed diary sessions to give would-be recruits a snapshot of life on an emergency unit. The trust is currently trying to recruit 20 nurses to work in the units.

MAU ward manager Lynne Evans said: ‘We wanted to give a full picture of the challenges and rewards which these roles offer – you really make a difference to patients. The video diary was an easy and fun way of getting our messages across to potential recruits.’

HCA Christine Bannon is pictured watching her video diary account.
