  • Nine in ten (90%) Directors and Deputy Directors of Nursing are concerned about recruiting new staff and approaching nine in ten (87%) are concerned about overall vacancy rates.
  • Approaching nine in ten (86%) Directors and Deputy Directors of Nursing agree nurses recruited from EU countries are essential for the proper functioning of NHS services across the UK, and three in five (59%) say they’ve recruited non-UK EU staff to fill staffing gaps.
