FIFTY nurses and midwives managed to bag a new job on the spot at a hospital recruitment day this month.
Over 200 people turned up in the hope of becoming a member of staff at King George Hospital in Goodmayes or Queen’s Hospital in Romford on June 17.
The recruitment day at Queen’s offered visitors the chance to get a taste of different departments including cancer, specialist medicine, and anaesthetics.
Staff made sure their department’s stall was as fun and interactive as possible in the hope of convincing people to join.
The elderly care team made their area into a pretend retro living room, while others gave visitors the chance to try out CPR on a dummy.
Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Trust (BHRUT) chief nurse Kathryn Halford said: “It was fantastic so many people came along and we were able to appointed 50 new nurses and midwives for our trust.
“I look forward to welcoming them to our hospitals.”
