Having previously struggled to recruit within the UK, the Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust enlisted the services of Mediplacements international projects team to source high calibre permanent nursing staff. Following 6 weeks of intensive recruitment campaigns across central Europe, the projects team successfully recruited 18 new members of staff for the Trust.
The recruitment drive was headed up by our international projects director Paul Read, who worked closely with senior Trust representatives to identify, interview and appoint a large number of Spanish nurses for Leighton Hospitals Medical and Surgical Wards.
On Friday 22nd February Paul made the conscious effort to organise a special evening out for all the new arrivals and staff involved in the process, to mark the success of the project and to welcome the Nurses to the UK.
