Chief nursing officer advises against recruiting from Ghana

The
Government is asking NHS trusts and agencies to stop recruiting nurses from
Ghana.

In
a bulletin to health professionals, England’s chief nursing officer Sarah
Mullally said: "If your organisation was considering actively recruiting
from Ghana using an agent, then please reconsider."

Her
appeal follows the introduction of a general code of practice on ethical
recruitment introduced by the Government earlier this year.

The
Department of Health said that it only recruits from countries which approve of
the UK targeting their nurses.
