German hospital luring Brexit-worried Polish nurses from UK

February 26, 2019 - 3:00 AM

DUESSELDORF, Germany - Worried about Brexit? Come to Germany where you get better salaries, better weather, better food — and a shorter trip for visits home to Poland.

That's a German hospital's pitch to Polish nurses working in Britain, who are among scores of European workers worried about what will happen to their work permits and right of residence if the United Kingdom leaves the European Union on March 29.

The university hospital of Duesseldorf put out the ads in two Polish weekly papers in Britain late last month. The hospital is in dire need of nursing staff and is hoping to fill that shortage with experienced professionals whose time in Britain may be running out.

Tens of thousands of European Union citizens currently living and working in Britain are concerned about what will happen to their status when the UK leaves the bloc.
