Doncaster NHS staff and patients take centre stage to star in recruitment videos

Staff and patients at a local health NHS trust serving Rotherham, Doncaster and Scunthorpe have taken centre stage as they ‘star’ in two short films on YouTube and social media to attract new recruits to join the organisation.

The staff, of Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) who have taken part in the videos, range from mental health nurses to researchers, rehabilitation assistants to occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, and executive directors. All with the aim of letting people know why they think RDaSH is a great place to work.

Nicola McIntosh, Director for People and Organisational Development, said: “We wanted to do something different to attract more people to come and work with us. What better way than to have our very own people taking a leading role and showcasing all the things that make RDaSH an employer of choice.”
