She explained the qualities they look for and the process of recruitment. Regular volunteering is highly regarded in young applicants – showing an early commitment to care, and all would be expected to reflect the qualities of the NHS. There are clear staff shortages in areas such as Nursing and Occupational Therapy and she explained how these registered roles, currently accessed via a university degree, are being developed via a work-based apprenticeship route for NHS staff in the future.
