“From a recruitment perspective, the demand for mental health professionals in particular is growing; ID Medical’s mental health division currently has 2,000 mental health professionals available to work and this number of growing daily. However, it is not just about staffing concerns; everyone within healthcare must help tackle the stigma surround mental health and mental health services.
“I would like to thank Mersey Care NHS Trust once again for inviting us to be a part of their notable Positive Achievement Awards and congratulations to their fantastic workforce and individual award winners.”
