Boris Johnson has hailed the recruitment of tens of thousands of doctors, nurses, police officers and other crucial public sector workers during 2020.

The Prime Minister said he had an ‘unwavering’ commitment to employ more key public sector workers in the year ahead.

More than 6,000 doctors and 13,000 nurses were recruited by the NHS, while 6,000 police officers were hired and 41,000 trainee teachers enrolled, No 10 said.

Mr Johnson called for those looking for jobs or a career change to consider frontline public sector roles this year.

He said he wanted to spearhead a drive to increase public sector recruitment in the year ahead. 

More than one million jobs are thought to have been lost so far as a result of lockdowns and the tier system.

Nursing and midwifery students accepting places at university this year also increased by 26 per cent on last year, No 10 said.

Nearly a thousand Border Force staff were recruited as part of Brexit preparations, with a further 1,100 staff will be recruited by July 2021. 

Meanwhile, a further 1,760 prison officers were employed across England and Wales last year

Mr Johnson said: ‘My commitment to recruit more teachers, nurses, police officers and other frontline workers is unwavering.

‘We have made good progress this year, but 2021 will be a year of growth and renewal – and having the very best frontline workers will be a critical part of that.’
