CON­SID­ER­ING a ca­reer in nurs­ing?

The Covid cri­sis shone a light on the in­cred­i­ble teams that make up the NHS.

Bur­saries have re­turned, so now is a fan­tas­tic time to make your first steps into a ca­reer where you can re­ally make a dif­fer­ence.

Nurs­ing cour­ses at Univer­sity of Cen­tral Lan­cashire (UCLan) still have va­can­cies for BSc in Adult Nurs­ing, start­ing this Septem­ber.

To find out more, visit UCLan web­site, and to ap­ply, visit the UCAS web­site.

Where pos­si­ble, place­ments are al­lo­cated by post­code, so stu­dents study­ing at UCLan can spend their place­ment at South­port and Orm­skirk Hos­pi­tals.

This will help them to gain valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence in their lo­cal area, with­out in­cur­ring huge costs which come from mov­ing away dur­ing stud­ies.

Brid­get Lees, Di­rec­tor of Nurs­ing, Mid­wifery and Ther­a­pies at South­port and Orm­skirk Hospi­tal NHS Trust, ex­plains: “I am sure that many young peo­ple, hav­ing seen healthcare work­ers have such an in­cred­i­ble im­pact on so­ci­ety dur­ing the Covid cri­sis, will be in­spired to fol­low this ca­reer path­way.”

Sarah Traill, Deputy Head of the School of Nurs­ing at UCLan con­tin­ues: “Nurs­ing is an ex­cit­ing and re­ward­ing pro­fes­sion, and whether this is a sec­ond ca­reer or a first step into the world of work and study, our ex­pert team of aca­demics, re­searchers and prac­ti­tion­ers will guide you to be­come the nurse of the fu­ture.”

LAN­CASHIRE’S Po­lice and Crime Com­mis­sioner has wel­comed a sig­nif­i­cant drop in the num­ber of re­ported crimes in the county, fol­low­ing the lat­est re­lease of crime num­bers from the Of­fice for Na­tional Statis­tics.

The fig­ures, which were re­leased this week, show a fall of 13% year on year for all re­ported crime, with vi­o­lent crime show­ing a 10% re­duc­tion.

Lan­cashire Po­lice and Crime Com­mis­sioner Clive Grun­shaw said: “I wel­come the news that crime has been cut sig­nif­i­cantly in Lan­cashire over the last 12 months with a 13% drop in the to­tal recorded crimes year on year.

“This comes at a chal­leng­ing time for the po­lice lo­cally, and re­flects the hard work that has gone into mak­ing Lan­cashire a safe place to live and work.

“These fig­ures are good news for Lan­cashire and show how, through con­tin­ued in­vest­ment, we are able to see pos­i­tive changes.

“The peo­ple of Lan­cashire con­sis­tently tell me that they want the po­lice to fo­cus on vi­o­lent crime, and the fact that it has re­duced sig­nif­i­cantly is tes­ta­ment to the hard work that has gone into tack­ling the is­sue.

“It is cru­cial that we are able to con­tinue to see a sus­tained drop in re­ported crime, and to do this we need in­vest­ment from gov­ern­ment.

“Now is the time for a fair deal for Lan­cashire Po­lice, and to re­turn the hun­dreds of of­fi­cers lost to aus­ter­ity.

“I have con­sis­tently called for Lan­cashire to re­ceive its fair share of of­fi­cers from the gov­ern­ment’s an­nounced in­crease in num­bers, and to­day’s fig­ures show what can be done with more of­fi­cers on our streets.

“Lan­cashire has shown that it is a force that can re­duce crime in tough times.

“I com­mend the hard work of Lan­cashire of­fi­cers in re­duc­ing crime so sig­nif­i­cantly in the last year. Of­fi­cers do an ex­cep­tional job in tough cir­cum­stances and should wel­come to­day’s news.”
