Support for a one-stop-shop approach to recruiting health workers from overseas.

National health agency Health New Zealand is setting up an international recruitment service, to make it as easy as possible for workers from other countries to move here and find jobs.

It's part of a package to boost the workforce, including a recruitment programme and financial incentives.

Accent Health Recruitment Manager Prudence Thomson told Mike Hosking the streamlined service will be fabulous.

She says having a national health service will be positive for overseas nurses, and it'll be seen as a smooth process to come to New Zealand.
