Foreign nurse numbers increasing


More than 40% of the nurses recruited to work at Gloucestershire's two largest hospitals are from overseas. In total, some 125 nurses have been taken on this year at the Cheltenham General and the Gloucestershire Royal.

A Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said it had struggled to recruit nurses but more UK-trained nurses would be joining in September.

Almost 1,700 nurses are employed by the trust with about 250 of these having come from abroad.

Next September, 50 nurses who will have qualified from the University of the West of England, will join.
