Hospitals take on apprentices

Have your say

FORTY people have taken part in an apprenticeship scheme at Scunthorpe and Grimsby hospitals with some going on to secure permanent employment.

The apprentices took on roles including maintenance support, catering, hotel services, business administration and phlebotomy after being recruited by Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust at the start of the year

Around £200,000 was invested in the scheme to provide people with an opportunity to gain experience working in the NHS, at the same time as undergoing training at college.
