2019 Winner

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust
The Global Learners Programme is an educational opportunity which provides qualified nurses from outside of the UK the chance to develop and add to their existing skills by working in the NHS for up to three years. As part of the programme, the Trust partners with Health Education England and has been working with a number of countries to support professionals through their preparation for language and competency tests; entry onto the UK professional register; visa application, and through a comprehensive programme of pastoral care prior to and on arrival. The objective is to hopefully create a circular programme with sustainable pipelines of cohorts arriving and returning each year.
