BARNSLEY Hospital is preparing to welcome a group of 60 nurses who are coming to work from Kerala in India.
The nurses, who will arrive in the town from Wednesday in six cohorts of ten, are coming as part of its international recruitment plan.
Adele Foley, from the hospital, said: “They are coming to England in the middle of a pandemic which is affecting their country too and many of them are leaving their own families to take up this opportunity.
“The hospital will be providing support for them throughout the recruitment process.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
