Meet the Overseas Programme Team

Dear Colleague,

Thank you and a very warm greeting from myself and the Overseas Programme Team here at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust which we refer to as 'SaTH'. We hope you know how excited we are to soon be meeting you, and how happy we are that you chose to come to our hospital.

We are aware this is an exciting but also daunting time for you as you prepare to come to England, probably for the first time. We want to reassure you as much as possible that you are in good hands. 

Ready to welcome you on your arrival, and to look after you in the very important first months here, is a team of friendly, experienced, and passionate nurses who are dedicated to making your transition as enjoyable as possible. They will be with you every step of the way - from greeting you at the airport, to settling you into your accommodation, and training and supporting you to become confident registered nurses.

We are really excited about this journey we are about to take together, and hope you are too.
