An increase in people paying for their own treatments has been given as one of the reasons a Solihull private hospital has launched a recruitment drive to attract new nurses and medical technicians.
With some treatments that are classed as limited clinical value restricted in the NHS, Spire Parkway Hospital has seen a big increase in ‘self-pay’ procedures over the last six months and now finds itself looking for extra staff to meet the growing demand. An increase in people paying for their own treatments has been given as one of the reasons Spire Parkway, private hospital, has launched a recruitment drive to attract new nurses and medical technicians.
“We are always on the lookout for good medical staff but the recent upsurge in the self-pay market has meant we have had to step up our efforts to attract new people,” said Hospital Director, Tony Yates.
“I realise there is a lot of competition for qualified nurses and technicians but I think we are offering a good all-round package here at Spire Parkway and with the hospital gaining in popularity, I think we are in a good position to attract the right kind of people.”
A new centre offering treatment for a wide range of cancers with specialist nursing and medical staff as well as some of the region’s top oncology consultants has recently opened at the hospital. The Spire Specialist Care Centre has six individual treatment pods for the administration of systemic anti-cancer therapy, (chemotherapy, immunotherapy and biological therapies) and supportive treatments.
The hospital, which also treats privately insured and NHS patients, is holding a Recruitment Open Day on Saturday July 16 from 9am when hospital tours and further job information will be available.
