Mid Yorkshire Teaching NHS Trust was awarded the ‘Best International Recruitment Experience’ at the Nursing Times Workforce Summit and Awards, held on 21 November 2023.

These awards, widely considered a pinnacle of recognition in the healthcare industry, honour excellence, innovation, and exceptional contributions to nursing and patient care.

The accolade specifically acknowledges the International Recruitment Team at the Trust for their supportive recruitment process of healthcare professionals from around the world. It highlights the Trust’s dedication to creating a nurturing environment that empowers its workforce to provide the highest quality of care.

International recruits embarking on their NHS journey at the Trust receive comprehensive guidance from their initial welcome. Support is extended through staff networks, accommodation recommendations, OSCE exam assistance, peer support, and professional development opportunities once recruits have acclimated.

Talib Yaseen, Chief Nursing Officer, said: “We are thrilled that the International Recruitment Team has been acknowledged for their outstanding efforts in attracting and integrating international talent seamlessly. This award underscores our Trust’s commitment to diversity, global collaboration, and the pursuit of excellence in healthcare. We are dedicated to making the Trust a brilliant and inclusive, place to work. I’m happy the team are being recognised for their hard work in making this a reality.”
