Developing a sustainable career pathway


A case study of how Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals (WHH) NHS Trust developed new nursing career pathways to improve retention and recruitment.

With WHH positioned between two large metropolitan areas, recruiting sufficient nurses to cover vacancies was a common challenge.

When combined with a rising rate of staff turnover more recently, the trust decided to consider new methods of improving their recruitment and retention of nursing staff.

Holding a series of physical and virtual engagement sessions, feedback from staff was employed to develop a clinical career pathway to provide opportunities for nursing staff.

Since implementation, the trust has experienced a 2.55% reduction in turnover, and an increase in the number of internal promotions over the last 12 months.
