Lancashire & South Cumbria Trust: 2023 Awardee for Best U.K. Employer of the Year for Nursing Staff

The urge of Filipino nurses to build a career in Western countries is increasing as ever. Aside from the prominent convenient and low-cost application process that the U.K. government and NMC have implemented, what adds to their drive is the U.K.'s exceptional working conditions, prosperous economy, and wide range of career opportunities for professionals who desire to focus on their specific specialties. You'll be able to come out of your comfort zone and explore something new or different that will help you develop strength and expand your skills to grow in your UKRN career.

Talking about hiring international nurses to work in the U.K., this country still needs healthcare professionals from different countries, including the Philippines. That's why, as you browse our official Facebook page, you'll see multiple advertisements about our U.K. clients, informative tips on how we can help you get to the U.K., and the statements and testimonials of our successfully deployed nurses in this country.

The U.K. is known for keeping its high standards in a healthcare system that focuses on patient safety and quality of care. They also have an internationally acknowledged licensing system and nursing education. It is no doubt why nurses really pursue a career in the U.K. NHS Professionals is the U.K.'s leading provider of clinical and non-clinical staff to various organizations in the country. A nursing career within the NHS provides free accommodation, excellent training for nursing practices, a competent salary, and assistance and support throughout your journey.

One of our NHS Trust clients - Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust, provides comprehensive support to nurses upon their arrival in the U.K. Nurses will receive a welcome package, assistance in buying sim cards and setting up bank accounts, generous food basket, and cash advance to help them prepare for their first few moments in the U.K. LSCft also provide training for nurses to develop their necessary clinical skills thoroughly, and understanding of medical procedures. This Trust also offers free accommodation for three months.

Once completed, you don't have to worry because they still support nurses in finding new accommodation. How about adjusting to U.K. life? The good thing here is that exploring astonishing establishments and famous tourist attractions and navigating the local transportation system are also included in LSCft's support system.

Seeing how this Trust values and cares for its employees, it is no wonder they have won a prestigious national award recognizing its efforts in achieving a nursing career pathway from entry-level to advanced practices that surely hone nurses' career skills and make them highly skilled professionals. Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust was awarded the 'Best U.K. Employer of the Year for Nursing Staff' at the Nursing Times Workforce Awards held in London last November 2023. This award signifies the effort and huge amount of work this Trust put in over the years to build the Trust as the best possible workplace for all professionals.
