We have a dedicated international nurse recruitment team, which includes IEN recruiters, clinical educators and practice development nurses.

My name is Saumya Sunil, a B.Sc nurse from India. I moved to the United Kingdom in March 2017 as an overseas nurse. I did my Overseas Nursing programme in Aug 2017, while working as a pre-registered nurse. Since 2017, my professional journey saw many challenges and through it all I developed my skills and knowledge with excellent support from the LNWH team. With the Trust promoting professional development opportunities, I was able to achieve my passion of being a tissue viability nurse. From starting as a band 4 IEN, today, four years down the road, I am proud to be part of the Tissue Viability Specialist team at a band 6 grade at LNWH NHS trust. I feel at home and part of a big team trying to make a difference in the quality of lives of people who are in need.

My name is Marigold Bacuyani, from the Philippines. My journey coming to the UK was full of challenges but also of rewards. I arrived in the UK in 2012 through the Overseas Nursing Programme and eventually received my NMC registration in 2014, following some difficulties with application processes. However, I can now say that my experiences has made me more resilient and taught me the value of hard work and persistence, that if you want something, you must work hard for it. I am now a Senior Nurse in the Trust at a band 7 and I not only am living my dream but also, seeing my family’s face beaming with pride and happiness, I could not really ask for more.

My name is Chinchu Kalarithara Baby. I completed my BSC in Nursing in 2014 and started the process to come to the UK in 2017. The reason I chose the UK was due to the recruitment procedures being quite straight forward and is absolutely free. I attended the interview from LNWUH Trust, which I think went excellently well and they also gave me the opportunity to choose which department I would like to work in. I eventually came to the UK in 2018 April where I was provided with accommodation on site. I joined the ward as an OSCE nurse and the OSCE training provided by the hospital was outstanding. I got my pin Number in August 2018 and started working as a band 5 Nurse. After a year, I joined the Dermatology Department in the Trust and was given the opportunity to attend specialist courses such as phototherapy course and skin surgery training. I was then promoted as Clinical Specialist Nurse in 2020. There are amazing opportunities for professional development in the Trust and the entire team is always helpful and supportive. The happiest moment is seeing the patient satisfaction after they receive their treatment. I enjoy working here and I am looking forward in achieving my future my career goals.

My name is Isobel Garcia and I arrived in the UK in February 2021 from the Philippines. I am grateful to all LNWH Team, and the IEN Recruitment staff for their exceptional support in bringing me and my colleagues here safely despite the struggle of each and everyone of us in the midst of the pandemic period. It was never a hindrance for the recruitment team to assist us safely with our journey and settlement in the UK. It is a great opportunity for us as IENs as it opens a wide range of learning experiences and acquisition of knowledge and skills in a different environment setting. The warm welcome of the diverse staff made us feel that we never left home. The wards have introduced us to new challenges, the hospital staff has been very supportive in every step of the way and are always there to assist, until we have blended in comfortably. Above all, it is not just a life changing chapter of every new beginnings, but also the opportunity to touch each of everyone’s heart and life.
