Voluntary retirement from the NHS: why do nurses want an early exit?
The Nursing Standard reports almost 75,000 nurses and other staff in the NHS took voluntary early retirement in the past decade in England and Wales. The figure has prompted a call for a renewed focus on retaining experienced older staff. Data obtained by Nursing Standard show 3,894 nurses, health visitors, midwives and physiotherapists took early retirement between April 2020 and March 2021, compared to 2,292 in 2010-2011.
