Yeovil Hospital is incredibly proud to announce that the hospital is one of three NHS Trusts within the UK to be awarded the new NHS Pastoral Care Quality Award.

The award was launched by NHS England and NHS Improvement Nursing International Recruitment Programme to give recognition to NHS trusts who provide excellent care to international nurses and midwives.

Yeovil Hospital has achieved this fantastic accolade during the award pilot after demonstrating nursing and midwifery colleagues from overseas receive enriched pastoral care at every step of their recruitment and beyond.

The hospital meet a set of standards developed by regional and trust international recruitment leads, and international nursing and midwifery associations that focused on best practice in pastoral care, providing safe arrival, induction training and ongoing support for international staff while they are in post. 

Chief of People and Organisational Development Isobel Clements said: “Creating a supportive and inclusive work environment for our staff is a top priority for our hospital and the whole NHS system. I am delighted that Yeovil Hospital is being recognised for all the help we give our international staff members and I am extremely proud of our multi-cultural family.”

By reaching all standards, Yeovil Hospital can proudly display this award and be recognised for the hospital’s commitment to staff wellbeing for both existing and potential employees. The voluntary scheme is now open to all NHS Trusts within the UK.
