|UK - Kenya Nurse Agreement: First Batch of Kenyan Nurses to Leave for UK Next Month by peter: Wed Sep 2021 08:27pm|
Kenya is set to send the first cohort of nurses to the United Kingdom this October.
Top Kenyan government officials are currently in the UK spearheading negotiations for better terms for the nurses expected to arrive from mid next month.
Health PS Susan Mochache and his Labour counterpart Peter Tum attended the joint overview meeting at Oxford University Hospital Trust, United Kingdom on the implementation of Bilateral Labour Agreement for Collaboration on Healthcare Workforce.
Kenya and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland signed a Bilateral Agreement for collaboration on healthcare workforce on 29th July 2021.
The Agreement allows Kenyan healthcare professional to be recruited to work in the National Health Service (NHS) of the UK.
Under the Agreement, the two governments will undertake capacity enhancement of human resources for health for purposes of delivery of basic and specialized services, by promoting knowledge and skills transfer.
The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection has been mandated to spearhead implementation of the Agreement in terms of recruitment and facilitating migration of qualified candidates to the United Kingdom. This will be carried out in collaboration with the Ministry of Health.
The positions were advertised by the National Employment Authority.
The special programme came at the request of the Government of Kenya to channel nurses currently unemployed into jobs.
The government has continued to facilitate jobless Kenyans with lucrative opportunities to work abroad through collaborations in the transport, medical and education sectors.
