Always the Bridesmaid……?
Hidden Talents, (our scheme which brings Refugees into the NHS nursing workforce), has now been a finalist in two NHS competitions run by the Health Service Journal and Nursing Times.
We are very proud of this, even though we didn’t actually win.
Our main objective has to been to attract other hospital Trusts into our Hidden Talents programme, which is so well regarded in Leeds, and so well supported by the local NHS Trust.
But we have knocked on doors, pitched at workshops and conferences, written to Chief Executives and used social media, but we’re still only working in Leeds. Our ambition is to win, work with more Trusts and help some 200 Refugees a year to join the NHS Nursing team whilst reducing agency costs and improving diversity with well-motivated and ambitious people.
Please open the door to us, and lead us up the aisle!
