Call for nurses in new Northamptonshire health centre

A new health centre in Brackley has launched a recruitment drive for nurses ahead of its opening this summer.

A statement released by Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT) reveals it needs a new local team of Band 5 staff nurses and Band 6 ward sisters to help shape and deliver the new service.

The centre will be similar to three other services that NHFT runs across the county at Isebrook Hospital in Wellingborough, Danetre Hospital in Daventry and Corby Community Hospital, which all provide specialist care for adults needing medical, physical or specialist rehabilitation, for example after a stroke or brain injury.

To aid recruitment, the trust is holding an open day at Egerton Hall in Brackley on Saturday 29 February for people to go to find out more about the service and the employment opportunities available.

Sarah Clarke, recruitment business partner at NHFT, said: “NHFT is a great Trust to work for. We know that in order to deliver the best possible care to our patients, we also need to support our staff, and the Trust has received national and international recognition for our work on staff wellbeing and engagement.”
