‘We need you’: Harris launches recruitment drive for more healthcare staff

‘We need you’: Harris launches recruitment drive for more healthcare staff

A massive recruitment drive is set to get underway across the Irish health service, as it gears up to deal with the expected substantial rise in cases of Covid-19 across the country.

This comes as the government predicts there will be a surge of up t0 10,000 cases of coronavirus in the country by the end of March.

Minister for Health Simon Harris said that every newly graduated doctor will be offered an internship, with well over 1,000 people looking for one this year.

He added to this a nurses recruitment call throughout Ireland with the message “your country needs you.”

“We are asking all healthcare professionals from all disciplines who are not already working in the public health service to register to be on call for Ireland,” the HSE said. “We will be creating extra hospital and care beds and will need extra hands to provide the care that’s needed. We need your help to meet the challenge that’s ahead.

“Maybe you aren’t a healthcare professional, maybe you’re studying to be one, or maybe you have other skills to offer or just want to volunteer to do your bit if needed.

Hopefully, we won’t need to call, and if we do, we may not need every one of you. But knowing you are there if we do will make all the difference.”
