United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust (ULHT) is holding an open day on Saturday at Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital.

Registered nurses, allied health professionals and people looking to return to nursing or people looking to adapt qualifications gained abroad are invited to the day.

There will be opportunities to see what life is like at ULHT and a chance to tour the wards and departments and a meet the chief nurse and chief executive.

The Trust is creating around 100 new posts to join teams across all its hospitals.

Acting chief nurse Pauleen Pratt said: “Health professionals are welcome to come and see what we do and ask questions. We are looking to recruit more clinical staff. As well as registered staff, we are also hoping to attract nurses whose children have recently started school and are now thinking about going back to work, or nurses who have recently retired but are looking to return part time.

“There’s full funding for all course fees and there’s more good news in that participants get £500 for ‘out of pocket’ expenses.

“We also want people who have qualified abroad and want to adapt their qualifications to UK standards.”
