Another Success Story!

Meet Jessica!

Jessica is one of our lovely nurses who had initially been referred us to by a friend.

Jessica applied to us via email and was later interviewed with University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust. After a rocky start of failing both IELTS and CBT first time, Jessica persevered and passed both tests on their second time, which resulted in the hospital being able to apply for her COS. Following the visa processing and arrival, Jessica started at Furness General Hospital on the 17th of October 2017.

Jessica stated “The process from start to finish was a year in the making but it was all worth it because of God’s grace and because of the continuous support of the staff of Jane Lewis International. From day 1, they have always supported me, assisting me with whatever I needed for the exams and the processing of documents. And I could not thank you guys enough for everything you have done. I pray for your continued success 🙂 God bless!”

Jessica has passed her OSCE and has obtained her NMC pin and is now a fully registered nurse – we wish her continued luck and success in her adventure at Furness!

At Jane Lewis we enable people to follow their dream of being a nurse in the UK. Email Robyn today to see how we can help you start your journey.

This is the story of Abegail.

Abegail is one of our lovely nurses from the Philippines. She is living proof that, with dedication and a positive attitude, you can achieve anything.

In an amazing turnaround time of just three months, Abegail completed the Jane Lewis International relocation process and is now living and working in the UK.

Abegail’s journey began in November when she was interviewed by representatives from Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. After travelling 4 hours to attend the recruitment event organised by Jane Lewis International, Abegail was offered a nursing position.

After attempting the IELTS test, Abegail booked for an OET to meet the NMC English language requirements, which she passed with flying colours! In the following two weeks Abegail passed her CBT and obtained all her documents to allow us to apply for her COS in January. After attending her Visa appointment, Abegail arrived in the UK on the 12th of February.

Abegail has the following advice – “If you were to ask me about the formula of breezing through the process, it would be – Hard work, determination, time management, partnership with people who have the same enthusiasm and energy as yours and prayers… And yes, dreams do come true!!!.”

Abegail started her new career with Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust on the 14th of February 2018. We wish her luck and success in her new adventure!

Client Testimonial – Countess of Chester Hospital

We are really grateful to Dee at Countess of Chester NHS Foundation Trust for her kind words about Jane Lewis International.

“The Jane Lewis agency has been the Countess of Chesters’ partner of choice for oversees recruitment for over 7 years.

They continue to market scan the globe for the best supply of nurses based on price and quality. The key differentiator is the thorough checking process they do which includes the likelihood and ability of the candidates to commit to our hospital, their ability to settle and their ability to stay. When things don’t go according to plan they are quick to respond and work with us to rectify any problems. I highly recommend the Jane Lewis agency and in particular, our account team of Courtney Wardle and Jane Grimwade.”

Kind Regards


~ Thanks Dee, long may we work with you.

“After an initial meeting with Jane Lewis International agency, we invited them into the university with Countess of Chester NHS Trust. They presented to final year students the benefits of working within the NHS and living in the UK. About 35 students attended the presentation, with 6 interviewing afterwards and all passing their interviews successfully. The hospital now has nursing positions reserved for them once they have finished their degrees. About 28 other students have expressed interest in interviewing in future with the hospital. We have also been invited to visit the hospital in Chester, as well as the University of Chester’s Faculty of Health and Social Care.”
