AROUND 40 jobs are being created by a national healthcare company that has opened a branch in Taunton.

Nurse Plus, which provides flexible staffing solutions for the healthcare industry, already has two staff in its offices in Victoria House, off East Reach.

And the firm is advertising in the County Gazette to recruit up to 40 healthcare assistants and nurses over the next six months.

Branch manager Siobhan Stewart said: “We’ll be looking to get established and grow in the local area over the coming 12 months and beyond, and Victoria House offers us the flexibility to do this.”

If these jobs are like other hospitals, then the chances are not many English/British nurses will be recruited.

Weston General has just employed around 60 Spanish nurses.

Begger's believe that we cannot encourage more people to go into nursing, but hi uni fee's does not help.

Any student who goes into the medical field should have fee's abolished to encourage more home grown hospital staff.
