320 new nurses join Sheffield Teaching Hospitals ready for winter


More than 320 new nurses and midwives have been appointed at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals.

150 newly registered nurses and 12 new midwives have joined or will be joining the Trust by November. This is in addition to 159 nurses who have joined the Trust since April this year.

The new nurses and midwives will be deployed across the Trust and will also help to manage the added pressures of the busy winter period.

Chief Nurse Professor Chris Morley said: “We are delighted to welcome our new nursing and midwifery colleagues who will be a fantastic addition to our existing teams caring for patients in our hospitals and community services. We are very fortunate to have one of the best retention rates for staff in the NHS and this means we have an experienced nursing and midwifery team to support these new nurses and midwives as they start the next stage in their career. Helping them to flourish and become the best nurse or midwife they can is key if they are to deliver the best care for our patients. As a large NHS Trust with many different services across our hospitals and community services, we have fantastic opportunities for nurses and midwives to join us and experience a breadth of roles as well as potential to further develop their career in a number of ways.”

Shraddha Kapdekar, International Nurse at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, said: “I joined the Trust in September this year and have been so pleased with my experience working here so far. I applied to Sheffield Teaching Hospitals as I felt it would be the best opportunity for me to develop my skills within a large organisation. Everyone has been so welcoming and the support and training I have received since I started has been marvellous. I’m really happy to have the opportunity to help patients who need my care.”
