Big welcome to all our new recruits .. and news about Sign Up Saturday - on October 13

It's been great this week welcoming a new cohort of nurses to CHFT.

The majority are newly qualified nurses and in the main from Huddersfield University - yet also amongst them were nurses with more experience too.

Trainer Lesley Norcliffe, in top pic with red top, said: "They were so enthusiastic and so keen to participate. They are a terrific group and will be real additions to our teams across the Trust." 

They will start in areas Trust-wide next week so please welcome and support them.

Here they are on one of their induction sessions at HRI Learning Centre.

We hope they will join our  3,000 followers on twitter @CHFTNHS  or via our Facebook page which already has more than 2,800  followers.

** We're also having a Sign Up Saturday. This is the name for our next Nurse Recruitment morning on October 13.

It will be held at Hudderfield Royal Infirmary in the morning and we are looking for Band 5s for our our wards and departments.

There are vacancies in many areas so if you are interested come along and find out more - and, spread the news to your friends and family who maybe interested in taking up this opportunity.

There will be tours and talks so all your questions relating to a career at CHFT can be answered.

if you're interested, call or email Amanda.McGrath@cht.nhs.uk or 01484 343363
