NURSES at the county’s hospitals are celebrating after being named Workforce Team of the Year at a prestigious national awards ceremony.
The Nursing Times Award, awarded to the Professional Development Team at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust last week recognises and rewards excellent work which supports the nursing and midwifery workforce.
The team were celebrated for a number of successful schemes they have put in place with the aim of creating a supportive environment for nurses and midwives, with opportunities to continue to develop their skills.
An innovative approach to international recruitment has also seen nursing and midwifery vacancies reduce and there has been an improvement in nurse and midwife retention.
