NHS Pastoral Care Quality Award – International nurses and midwives

20 November 2023

Kingston Hospital has been awarded the NHS Pastoral Care Quality Award, recognising the support we provide to our internationally educated nurses and midwives.

Launched in March 2022, the NHS Pastoral Care Quality Award is part of NHS England’s International Recruitment Programme, supporting NHS organisations to increase and develop international recruitment plans.

The standards NHS trusts must meet to achieve the award have been co-developed with regional and trust international recruitment leads and international nursing and midwifery associations, which provide pastoral and professional support to international nurses and midwives in the UK.

The award recognises the Trust’s work in international recruitment and our ongoing commitment to providing high-quality, tailored pastoral care to nursing and midwifery colleagues as they start their NHS journey and onwards in their career.
