Mabuhay! Matrons welcome nurses arriving from the Philippines

Friday November 3, 2017

Seven more nurses flew in from the Philippines last week to start their new lives here working for Western Sussex.

Bizarrely, for 41-year-old clinical instructor Fidelo Tannola the British weather played a part in his decision!

He said: “For 41 years I have been complaining about the heat and brightness in the Philippines!” On a more serious note, Fidelo said that having hit 40 he wanted to do something new and exciting.

Meanwhile, 27-year-old Kyra Gargantiel wants to take advantage of the increased opportunties for nurses working in the UK, compared to the lower wages back home.

She said: “I’m so grateful for this opportunity and everyone has been so kind, accommodating and hospitable.”
