Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust want experienced and newly-qualified nurses to join its teams at North Devon District Hospital and in the community.

An open day is being held at North Devon District Hospital (NDDH) as part of a campaign to recruit more nurses.

Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust want experienced and newly-qualified nurses to join its teams at NDDH and in the community.

The open day is being held on Wednesday, October 25 between 11am and 4pm.

People attending can meet different nursing teams and will have a tour of NDDH.

Staff will also be on hand to talk about what it’s like to work for the trust, as well as have an interview on the day if they complete an application form in advance.

Darryn Allcorn, director for nursing, quality and workforce, said: “We are an award-winning organisation with the best staff survey results in the South West.

“The survey results show that our teams really feel they are able to make a difference, both to patients and to making improvements across the organisation.

“We are looking forward to meeting any nurses or nursing students who think that this sounds like a place they would like to work, whether they’re looking to relocate or are just starting their career in nursing.”
