An investigation’s found that Brexit may be having an impact on NHS staff levels in the Connect FM area.
Research from the Local News Partnership looked into whether numbers of EU nationals leaving and joining the NHS had changed significantly between 2014-15 and the first six months of this year.
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s NHS Foundation Trust saw a nought-point-seven percent increase in staff leavers from the union – however levels of joiners actually increased by over two percent.
Levels of both new employees and those departing seem to have been impacted at Northampton General – while Northamptonshire Healthcare Trust saw no major change in departures and a one-point-seven percent decrease in new employees.
It’s a similar story for Kettering General – EU leavers actually dropped two per cent – but joiners are down more than five percent.
