First published in News

HEALTH bosses have announced the launch of a new apprenticeship scheme – with guaranteed jobs at the end of it.

Hospitals across south Cumbria and north Lancashire are recruiting up to 50 new frontline apprentices.

David Wilkinson, director of workforce development at the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, said: “As one of the area’s largest employers, we are committed to the idea of jobs for local people, developing a skilled and motivated workforce and promoting professional development.”


The scheme will take on up to 25 new healthcare support workers to train on the wards and departments at Furness General Hospital and the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

The first apprentices will spend one day a week at college, 25 hours working within the hospital, with additional study time required. The programme will start in September.
