NHS launch health visitor recruitment drive in Barking and Dagenham
A drive to recruit more health visitors in the borough was launched this month.
North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT) wants to increase the numbers of new health visitors over the next three years to help support children and families.
The drive follows a Department of Health pledge to recruit an additional 4,200 health visitors across the NHS by 2015.
Student or registered nurses, experienced, former or newly qualified health visitors as well as nurses thinking about a change of career can apply to become a health visitor.
Gill Mills, director of children’s services at NELFT, said: “We are offering career development opportunities for eligible people who have a passion for giving children the best start in life and supporting families.”
