'Why I want to work in a UK hospital'

More than two thirds of the trusts and health boards in the UK are actively trying to recruit aboard because of a shortage of qualified staff.

Every week hospitals are flying to countries around the world to try and find nurses and doctors willing to re-locate.

The United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust has been to the Philippines, around 6,500 miles from the UK, to try and find some much needed nurses.

After four days of interviews, staff from the trust offered 131 nurses jobs in Lincolnshire.

Rose Lagrosas from Manila, 26, is one of them. She told BBC News why she wanted to work in the UK.
