Nursing recruitment boost for Trafford wards

More than 50 new nurses have joined the ranks at Trafford General Hospital following a successful recruitment drive.  Every ward is benefiting from this initiative which has attracted 44 nursing and 10 clinical support staff to Trafford.

Jane Grimshaw, Head of Nursing for Trafford Hospitals, welcomed the new nurses to the hospital and said that 2012 had been a busy year with significant changes for nursing staff. She said: "The teams here have adapted extremely well to all the developments.  This boost to nurse staffing levels will ensure that the nursing care that we provide at Trafford Hospital is of a consistently high standard.

"We are developing robust training programmes for all nursing staff to support their clinical practice and delivery of patient care. I look forward to working with all our nurses in the coming year to develop nursing practice and continue our focus on enhancing patient care and patient experience."

Monthly inspections by ward managers were introduced in Trafford last May to review all aspects of patient care and the results are available on the wards for all to see.  New hand-held electronic devices will be introduced in February to seek the views of patients and carers on the quality of care that they have received, in line with practice in CMFT's other hospitals.
