100+ 'Happy Snappers' Send NHS Photos To Attract New Staff

NHS organisations in Cumbria that asked local people to 'get snapping', have so far received more than 100 photos from the public. 

The appeal was an attempt to showcase what it's like to live and work in the county - and the pictures will now be used to attract potential new recruits. 

Linda Bennetts, Associate Director or Nursing for Mental Health at CPFT, said: “Cumbria is really unique in what it has to offer and that’s what we want to capture.

"Who better to show off what it’s like to live and work here than the people who do just that?

"We’re inviting staff, businesses and the public to send us their photos that show everything from the spirit of Cumbrian people, the lifestyle and culture to the nightlife, work life and landscape.

“If people move here they’re not just interested in the job, they want to know what the area is like to live in. I recently moved to Cumbria from Cornwall and was drawn here by the values of the organisation and the quality of life for my family.”  

You can send up to four high quality photos to Communications.helpdesk@cumbria.nhs.uk
