The open day is on Monday, January 23 from 10.30am until 7.30pm, and is free to attend.

The group will be looking to register jobseekers who are Registered General Nurses of all grades, health care assistants and support workers.

The group says it has a number of jobs available at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham and other hospitals and clinics locally.

A high number of people are expected to attend, so booking ahead is advised.
