It’s a warm Walsall welcome to our latest group of international nurses who are joining our trust from Nigeria!
Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust, in partnership with Royal Wolverhampton Trust, is proud to be working with 17 new colleagues who have been offered a Clinical Fellowship Programme. They have all passed their IELTS (International English Language Testing System) exams and will be sitting their OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) in July.
They will be working across critical care and surgery at Walsall Manor Hospital and are looking forward to their new roles and lives in the Black Country.
Michael Amayaka said: “I looked at different trusts but I was attracted to Walsall because of the values of Compassion, Respect, Professionalism and Teamwork. They resonated with me and are aligned to my own values in my professional practice.
“I am looking forward to visiting the Critical Care Unit this week and seeing the environment there as it is a new unit.”
Mercy Ndukwe’s background is in neonatal intensive care but in Walsall she will be working in elective surgery.
“I am looking forward to it. Quality of care is really important to me and I want to be part of that in Walsall for our patients.”
