Nurse recruitment drive as A&E pressures continue

Hospitals in Leicester are holding a recruitment day to try and find more nurses. It comes at a time of very high pressure in hospitals - particularly in A&E departments.

Registered nurses are being invited to look round the city's Royal Infirmary and take part in workshops. They'll be conducting interviews for vacant jobs and giving advice about training opportunities.
