Advert offering the ‘security of an EU state’ hopes to lure nurses worried about life in the UK post-Brexit
A German hospital is trying to poach Polish nurses working in the UK, advertising jobs in English-Polish newspapers encouraging them to “come back home”.

“Polish people feel very worried about their future in Britain. They are worried about freedom of movement, there are a lot of concerns about whether they’ll be able to stay and work in the UK.
