Recruitment Of Vincentian Nurses To Work In The UK Begins

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Commerce is pleased to inform that on December 7, 2018, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines concluded a Memorandum of Understanding with Health Education England for the recruitment of Vincentian Nurses to the National Health Services of the United Kingdom.

The Memorandum of Understanding allows for cooperation between Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and National Health England for the development of healthcare delivery through the recruitment of nurses.

It was signed by His Excellency Cenio Lewis, High Commissioner of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in London and Michelle Thompson, Head of the Global Learners Programme at Health Education England.

To facilitate the first phase of the recruitment process, Health Education England has requested that unemployed nurses who are holders of a degree or an associate degree and wish to work in the United Kingdom, to submit a curriculum vitae (CV).

Interested persons can submit their CV’s to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Commerce by December 31, 2018.

Officials from Health Education England will be visiting Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in early 2019 to meet with applicants who were contacted and issued letters of invitation.

Please be advised that all information provided on the CV must be accurate, as any false information will result in disqualification.

The Ministry will inform the general public of further developments in relation to the recruitment of nurses to the United Kingdom.


  1. Why are we training so many surplus nurses at a cost of thousands of dollars a year each — not to mentions the ten of thousands to raise, feed, clothe, and educate them from birth until entry into nurses’ training — just to supply them free of charge to England which did not have to pay any of these expenses but are still benefiting from their labour?

    The answer from the Honourable Prime Minister has always been that they will send money back home to their families. But this “benefit” could never compensate for the other costs mentioned.

    We, a poor country, are subsidizing England, a rich one. How does this make any economic sense?

  2. Take the opportunity, my Vincentian countrywomen and countrymen.
    Embrace as s fine start, at least.
    Yes, take the plunge. A rolling stone gathers little or no moss.
