Hospitals to recruit Greek nurses
A team from Lincolnshire's Hospitals Trust is preparing to fly out to Greece, to try and recruit more foreign nurses to work in the county.
35 new nurses, who were all required to take an English test, have already been appointed by United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust following a drive earlier this year in Spain and Portugal.
This trip to Greece is to interview further candidates. The Trust's Chief executive Jane Lewington says it's facing a major battle when it comes to recruiting and keeping nurses in their jobs
Chesterfield Royal Hospital has announced it's going to be employing more nurses. 40 new staff will be taken on to work across 9 wards following an investment of almost one and a half million pounds.
It's after concerns were raised in a staff survey last year which said there weren't enough nurses on some wards and they were having to take on temporary or agency staff to cope.
