Your hos­pi­tal needs you says cam­paign­ing Wex­ford Gen­eral

Wexford People - - NEWS -

WEX­FORD Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal is ac­tively and vis­i­blly re­cruit­ing for its nurs­ing and mid­wifery teams.

Huge new signs pro­claim­ing the re­cruit­ing drive ap­peared out­side the hos­pi­tal over the week­end and have al­ready led to ap­proaches from Dublin-based nurses ea­ger to move to Wex­ford.

Mar­garet Cur­ran, the Di­rec­tor of Nurs­ing and Mid­wifery at Wex­ford hos­pi­tal, said that while staff re­cruit­ment was con­tin­u­ous and there had al­ready been two com­pe­ti­tions this year, it was de­cided to boost the cam­paign for qauli­fied nurses through highly-vis­i­ble and at­trac­tive sig­nage ‘due to its con­tin­u­ous na­ture’.

‘It’s con­tin­u­ous rather than putting it in the pa­pers or on so­cial me­dia,’ she said, adding that the sig­nage had been well re­ceived. Ms Cur­ran said she had va­can­cies for be­tween 20 and 30 nurses on the gen­eral side with five to eight in mid­wifery, which were the most crit­i­cal be­cause of the spe­cial­ist qual­i­fi­ca­tions that were de­manded to work in mid­wifery in Ire­land which ruled out a lot of would-be can­di­dates from some coun­tries over­seas.
