An advice and support event was held at Blackpool Victoria Hospital to help the families of newly recruited staff.
Advisors from Blackpool Council, Coastal Housing and Blackpool and The Fylde College attended the session to help answer questions about accommodation, courses and jobs.
The drop-in event was well attended with new starters and their partners able to access advice in a one-stop-shop environment.
Practice Development Sister, Sharon Vickers, said: “In order to look after our staff we want to ensure their families are well supported too. This event will help us with staff retention and ensure we have a happy, well-adjusted workforce.
“The event was open to anyone who recently started working for Blackpool Teaching Hospitals,” she added.
“For overseas staff the event offered help with cultural changes as well as practical advice about English classes, accommodation and education. But we hope the session was useful for all new starters who are locating to this area and may need advice about accessing support services in the area.”
