Region Västerbotten on summer staffing in healthcare


Region Västerbotten is recruiting too full to get enough staff for care this summer. At the same time, the municipality of Umeå offers 50,000 a month to health care workers who choose to work during the summer - an offer that the region does not consider itself to be able to match.

Summer staffing in health care is a puzzle that requires a lot of energy to put in for many municipalities in Västerbotten. To make people want to work this summer, the municipalities use different strategies, such as in Umeå where experienced nurses offer SEK 50,000 a month.

But Brita Winsa, director of health at Region Västerbotten, says that no similar offer is being discussed by the municipality of Umeå for temporary workers.

- We have a great understanding that Umeå Municipality is trying to resolve the staffing for the summer, she says.

Can offer employees summer contracts

However, she adds that some adjustments will be made by the region.

- We have a kind of summer agreement that we can sometimes offer our employees.

Hear what Brita Winsa says about the challenge with summer staffing and Umeå municipality's offer in the clip above.
