November Nurse of the Month – Mithun Prasannakumar
At WESolutions, we believe in building long-lasting relationships that go above and beyond just securing new roles for nurses from all over the world. We’ve been committed to understanding the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of the people we work with so that they can build the career (and life) that they want.
Our Nurse of the Month initiative is designed to highlight the journey, achievements, and experiences of some of the most talented nurses we have had the pleasure of assisting to identify their dream jobs. Without further ado, we would like to introduce November’s Nurse of the Month, Mithun Prasannakumar.
Mithun arrived in the UK as a pre-registered nurse, and after successfully achieving his nursing registration, he was promoted as a Charge Nurse at Medway Maritime Hospital, Gillingham.
When the pandemic first broke last year, Mithun was working at the Covid-19 ward. And his response and outlook on the situation were very positive. He was determined to care and serve the people regardless of their condition.
He has been a huge asset to the NHS Trust, and we are so proud of his achievements. Thank you for making us a part of your success, Mithun. You are really one of our NHS Heroes!
