Morale boost for nurses as Northampton General Hospital named 'positive workplace' Northampton General Hospital has jumped ahead of its rivals in the competition to attract new nurses and midwives.
The hospital has become the UK's first to achieve an international mark of excellence for having a positive work environment for nursing and midwifery staff.
England’s Chief Nurse Ruth May, addressing NGH employees on Wednesday, said: "I’m thrilled for each and every one of you.
"I have seen, felt and heard the difference that this makes and it is a just reward for all your efforts. Our challenge is how it roll it out nationally; let’s have nurses whooping right across England.” Northampton Chronicle and Echo
