NHS Grampian today announced a groundbreaking collaboration with a
local film company Northport Studio, aimed at creating short films to
facilitate the recruitment of more than 20 new staff for Dr Gray’s Hospital.
These films will play a crucial role in supporting the
implementation of the new enhanced consultant led maternity service in Moray.
Alasdair Pattinson, Hospital General Manager, said, "This
collaboration marks a significant step in our efforts to expand our healthcare
team at Dr Gray’s Hospital.
“This will allow us to connect with potential candidates in a
unique and engaging way, showcasing the opportunities and advancements within
our hospital ensuring a bright and vibrant future for the hospital and services
for the population of Moray”.
“The promotional films put the Moray area at their very heart.
Moray is an undiscovered gem and making people aware of the magnificent quality
of life we can offer here is our best chance of attracting the people we need
to work in our health and social care system.”
The release of these videos precedes a full recruitment campaign
set to launch later this week. Further details about the campaign will be
revealed in the coming week.
Mr Pattinson also said he was grateful to local campaign group,
Keep Mum, for facilitating the connection with the Elgin based film company
“It’s been a great chance to collaborate with some great people
who are hugely talented and internationally recognised in their field. I’m
delighted they’ve put those skills to use to help us attract people to come and
work in Moray. It’s also fantastic how they made our local NHS staff the stars
of the film and it’s already generated a lot of excitement.”
He added: “As we anticipate the official campaign launch this
week, NHS Grampian remains committed to enhancing the healthcare services at Dr
Gray’s Hospital and welcoming new members to our team. Our ultimate goal is to
provide full consultant-led maternity services at the hospital in 2026 and I
hope the level of investment in these promotional films and the recruitment
campaign demonstrate how committed we are to that.”
