A total of 18 nurses, 10 from Romania and eight from Poland, are set to start work at Pilgrim Hospital this month.

The new nurses, who have all passed the required training required to work in the UK, include a husband and wife pairing who have travelled here together.

The latest intake has been selected as being more likely to ‘plant roots’ in the area, especially as there is ‘already an ex-pat community here’, according to United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust director of operations Tina White.

She said she was ‘hugely optimistic’ adding: “It’s great that we have got 18 people that want to come to work with us in the UK.”

A previous attempt, where 20 young, single Greece and Italian nurses were hired led to disappointment as they later moved away to be closer to major cities and airports.
