Nurse recruitment drive continues

Newly arrived nurses, including some from Greece, Italy and Spain, say they have enjoyed the start of their career at Royal Papworth Hospital.

Pre-Registration Staff Nurse Marsida Dule, who arrived from Greece in December and is now on Varrier Jones Ward, said staff had been very welcoming.

"Everyone has been lovely," she said. "We've been very busy studying for our exams... But the staff are very supportive - it's a great opportunity."

Meanwhile, the recruitment team have recently visited a number of universities to promote the hospital to undergraduate nurses. Linda Lewis, Lead Nurse Recruitment and Retention, said: "We've had a really busy couple of months - and we'd like to thank a lot of different members of staff for their support. We're continuing to attend events and hopefully we can continue to get positive results."
