Lili Baleanu is a Romanian nurse working at Great Western Hospital - one of the steeply declining number of EU nurses to arrive since the Brexit referendum.
Lili graduated as a nurse in Romania in August last year and arrived at GWH in late November. She passed the obligatory English language test (the IELTS - more of which later) and will become a fully registered nurse in a matter of days - getting her Pin number from the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC).
The general election brings - as usual - a wealth of promises and opinions about the NHS. There is not, however, much talk about the GP crisis.
About ten per cent of NHS doctors (not all of them GPs) are EU nationals - so unless the post-Brexit status of EU nationals to remain is not fixed soon, the shortage of GPs could get a lot worse. A poll in February found that nearly two out of three EU doctors in the NHS were considering leaving the UK.
