WORKFORCE: The mental health foundation trust intends to add two new nurse consultants to its workforce, according to its latest HR report.

Board papers state that executive director of nursing and quality Helen Greatorex advised a meeting of directors on 1 June that service director John Rosser “will be recruiting a wellness focused nurse consultant and a suicide prevention nurse consultant at the beginning of the summer”.

The trust employs around 4,800 people and recently added a further 250 to its workforce after taking control of child and adolescent mental health services in Hampshire and services at Lewes Prison.
