Staff retention: supporting staff in their career pathway


The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust demonstrates how it supports its staff in their career pathway, as part of the national retention support programme.

There are many great examples of organisations already implementing comprehensive strategies to support retention of staff. The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust implemented a programme of work to support newly qualified staff.

It features the deputy director of nursing, a lead nurse and a newly qualified nurse talking about some of the work:

  • staff engagement is key
  • offering support to nurses on varying career stages enabling staff and peers to easily identify where team members need support
  • building relationships with universities to attract new staff
