Ann McIntyre, Director of Workforce at Guy’s and St Thomas’s NHS Foundation Trust (GSST), is challenging NHS managers to recruit people with more diverse backgrounds, including from the military.
She said that IT, HR, Engineering, Operational and Project Management are ideal departments for people with no healthcare experience.
Ann McIntyre made her comments at the NHS Step into Health (SiTH) Armed Forces Showcase Event, which was at 256 Field Hospital in London on Thursday 22nd June. The event promoted the employment opportunities in the NHS for people leaving the Armed Forces. The NHS is the largest employer in the world. NHS in London has 100,000 employees, and its 12% staff turnover provides work mobility and opportunity.
