Legendary Greater Manchester musicians such as The Stone Roses, New Order and Elbow as well as contemporary artists Bugzy Malone and Pale Waves, and Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye have lent their lyrics to a Greater Manchester nurse recruitment campaign.
The film, ‘Unsung’, features Greater Manchester nurses reading aloud lyrics from well-known songs by Manchester musicians, as part of our campaign to highlight the fantastic career opportunities in the region and drive more nurses to study here, start their career here, and develop and excel here.
The campaign is supported by all four Greater Manchester universities, NHS providers, GP Practices and independent care homes and is part of a wider programme of work that is in development to improve the region’s offer to nurses. Manchester Local Care Organisation has been involved in the video, encouraging staff to join our community nursing teams.
The campaign has been led by Greater Manchester nurses on behalf of Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, with support from the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham.
Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester said: “This video is brilliant. It celebrates two of the things I love most about Greater Manchester – our music and our NHS – and the campaign reflects our commitment to continuing to make this a great place to start your career, or to come and work as a nurse, as we build a health and care workforce fit for the future.”
Professor Ian Trodden, chief Nurse at Manchester Local Care Organisation added: “We were delighted to be involved in this film. In my opinion there's no better place to nurse than Greater Manchester. As well as the fantastic services you can work in in both hospitals and the community, this film celebrates the rich culture of our area which helps make it a great place to live and be proud of. Whether you are starting your career, looking for a change, or relocating, Greater Manchester wants you to join our team.”
