A MAJOR recruitment drive has been launched by the hospital trust in charge of Barrow’s hospital.
The University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust has launched the drive for more than 20 staff to work in its children and young services department including nurses and support workers.
UHMBT is the trust that runs Furness General Hospital, in Barrow,
Advertisements have been placed in a number of professional publications in a bid to attract people to the area.
The advert said: “Looking for a new career path in one of the most picturesque parts of the country? Are you a student looking to take up your first post?
“Then Morecambe Bay is just the place for you, offering the beautiful Lake District on your doorstep and within easy reaching distance of the city of Lancaster which offers excellent transport links to the main cities in the UK.
“Our Trust is recruiting enthusiastic, highly motivated nurses and clinical support staff, to join our dynamic, dedicated, forward thinking professional team which serves a wide geographical area with rural and urban communities.
“You will be reliable, flexible, motivated, have excellent clinical skills, a commitment to ongoing learning and development, a commitment to delivering high quality care, and be willing and open to embracing positive change and transformation in order to meet the demands of the community we serve.
“If this sounds like you, then we want to hear from you!”
Paula Evans, Assistant Chief Nurse for Children and Young People at the Trust said: “We are looking for a mixture of staff across our children’s services.
“This will include registered children’s nurses as well other professionals such as play specialists, or clinical support workers to support our nursing teams on either the wards, in outpatient clinics or in our assessment rooms.
“This is a major campaign to recruit the extra staff we need to continue the improvements we have implemented in our children’s services.”
Interviews for the posts will be held on May 19 for nursing staff and for the support worker posts on 20 May at Royal Lancaster Infirmary and on May 21 at Furness General Hospital.
