NCH&C gets to know West Africa

NCH&C gets to know West Africa

Early next year, NCH&C is expanding its workforce with  a cohort of 30 international nurses from West Africa.

We are already excited to meet our new colleagues arriving from Nigeria. We know these talented and experienced care professionals will be an asset to NCH&C and our local communities.

In preparation for their arrival, we held a staff event so colleagues could find out more about Nigeria and its nurses. On Wednesday 29 September, some of our wonderful nurses organised the Getting to Know West Africa event, in partnership with the Norfolk and Waveney ICS.

We were treated to delicious Nigerian cuisine from African Kitchen, as well as Nigerian music. Several of our Nigerian and West African colleagues who already work at the trust also attended in traditional dress. As we’re sure all the attendees will agree, it was fascinating to find out more about Nigeria and its culture.

Check out some of the great photos from the event below.

We’d like to thank the NHS England International Recruitment team for taking the time to attend the event.

And to all our Nigerian colleagues who will be arriving soon – we can’t wait to meet you!
