The estate we're in
An east end London housing estate is offering reasonably priced accommodation to newly trained qualified nursing staff in an effort to help maintain a high level of staff retention at several local hospitals and health facilities. The majority of newly qualified nursing staff are unable to pay the high prices being charged for accommodation in the London area, forcing many to move away. A fully-equiped one bedroomed flat can be rented for as little as 75 pounds sterling per week on the Woodlands estate, Newham, London.
