The UK will approach nearly 90,000 nurses whose registration has lapsed within the previous four years to tackle a possible workforce shortage in the event of a surge in H1N1 cases.

In Scotland alone, the Nursing & Midwifery Council said it will contact nearly 10,000 previous workers including 7,695 nurses, 148 midwives and 1,686 dual qualified nurses/midwives.

The decision is part of Scotland’s revised central guidance for NHS Scotland Boards on the workforce implications of H1N1, issued in August 2009.
