On Thursday, Belfast Lord Mayor Councillor Kate Nicholl welcomed nine nurses — seven from Zimbabwe, one from Nigeria and one from Ghana — who have come to Northern Ireland to live and work in Belfast.

The eight female and one male nurse recently passed their Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) nursing exams after being mentored by colleagues and are now working in wards and theatres at Kingsbridge Private Hospital where they are contracted for five years.
