The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust has had a fantastic response to its recent recruitment campaign to increase staffing levels. Following a well-attended recruitment open day at Dewsbury & District Hospital last Saturday, the Trust successfully appointed in total; 87 Health Care Assistants (HCA’s), 7 Safety Support Workers (SSW’s) and 6 Registered Nurses.
The new staff will all be in post by August this year and will be joining the Trust at Pinderfields and Dewsbury & District Hospitals.
David Melia, Director of Nursing & Quality at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust said, “As a Trust we are delighted to have seen such a great response to these positions and to have met such ambitious and inspiring people who want to become part of the team in providing quality care to our patients.
“I’m sure they will quickly settle on their wards, where we expect them to display the caring and compassionate qualities we rightly require to provide the highest standard of care possible for our patients. We will be offering all of our new recruits a great deal of support in their first few months with the Trust. We look forward to welcoming all of our new starters to the Trust over the next few months.”
