Welcome bonus for new inpatient registered nurses and medical staff

Posted: 24/12/21

We are delighted to announce we will be offering a welcome bonus to new registered nurses and medical staff who join our Trust.

CNTW will be offering a bonus of £3,000* to all new appointments of registered nursing and medical posts in inpatient services.

The aim of this incentive is to support recruitment onto wards and support staff in helping to address short-term shortages.

With effect from 27th December, a payment of £3,000 will be paid for all new appointments to inpatient registered nursing and medical posts.

Gary O’Hare, Chief Nurse at the Trust, said: “We are aware we are living and working through unprecedented times. Our staff have been placed under enormous strain through the pandemic and have responded admirably to the challenge, but we recognise the day-to-day difficulties in maintaining the right staffing levels.

“Having a full qualified staffing complement, if achieved, would help produce further savings and more importantly enable us to provide a more therapeutic and supportive environment on wards. We will continue to explore further options for incentivising staff to join the Trust and support improvements to help meet the needs of the people we serve.”

A leading provider of mental health and disability services across the North East and north Cumbria, CNTW has introduced a number of initiatives to make wellbeing a priority. One initiative is the Thrive website launched earlier in the year which was designed to be a ‘one stop shop’ for health and wellbeing information.

The website follows the principle of the Trust’s ‘wellbeing star’, which reflects the holistic nature of individual wellbeing. The six points of the star all aim to support good overall health and wellbeing for staff.
