There are surprisingly few professions that are directly affected by bankruptcy and nursing is not one of them. We have taken literally hundreds of NHS staff through bankruptcy and have never heard of any repercussions.
In terms of applying for work, you would be obliged to answer the question ‘have you ever been bankrupt’ honestly, but please bear in mind that your name is removed from the Insolvency Register 15 months after the bankruptcy took place. We would be surprised if the question was asked in relation to Nursing – it is normally asked when applying for financial services, accounting and legal positions.
Bankruptcy UK offers bankruptcy help across the board and will submit your application online. Court appearances for bankruptcy are no longer required. Feel free to call us on 01425 600129 for a chat about your circumstances.
