A drop-in session is being held in North Tyneside next week as part of a recruitment drive for nurses.

Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is holding the event at 7-8 Silver Fox Way in Cobalt Business Park, North Shields, on Tuesday.

Running from 4pm to 7pm, it is aimed at nurses who have trained overseas and are now keen to work in Northumberland and North Tyneside.

Jenny Locsin, a ward manager at North Tyneside General Hospital in North Shields, moved to the North East from the Philippines in 2002 and is now urging other health staff trained overseas, like her, to join up.

“We would urge anyone who has trained as a nurse overseas and is keen to gain their registration and work for our trust to come along to find out more.”
