The NHS is turning to Mumsnet in an attempt to entice nurses back into the profession, as it struggles to deal with a recruitment crisis. The marketing deal with the parenting website was revealed as part of the “Interim NHS People Plan”, in which the organisation acknowledged that it needed to improve working conditions if it was to retain and recruit staff. NHS leaders welcomed the attempt to deal with the problem, but said that the plan was reliant on further cash for staff training in a spending review due in the autumn.
