RefuAid has recently teamed up with the NHS and Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) to provide a programme for refugee nurses in the UK to return to practice. Their pilot programme has just finished in Liverpool (see the BBC North West news footage here), and now they’re looking to source more nurses for future cohorts – the next one is running in late April.
Please see Refugee NHS Nurses Pilot FAQs for full details of the programme.
In order to be accepted onto the programme, LJMU and the NHS have requested that candidates should have:
- Strong English language skills.
- Prior registration as a nurse in a country outside of the UK.
- A refugee background, with Permission to Work in the UK.
- Availability to attend the four-week programme in Liverpool across late April & May.
If you know anyone in your network fits the bill, please forward the below questionnaire to them and RefuAid will be in touch soon:
