What we do

Hospitals and nursing homes

We supply nursing professionals to NHS and private hospitals, as well as nursing and care homes. Our last-minute nursing solution can help cover staff absence, due to sickness or holiday, opening of escalation wards, or managing an influx of patients.

Individuals living at home

Our community nurses and care staff enable people to remain out of hospital. We support providers who may be experiencing staff shortages or have patients at risk of hospital admission. We can also facilitate hospital discharge at short notice.

Community settings

Our last-minute nursing solution stretches beyond traditional hospital settings. We have many specialist nurses able to work in a variety of environments, such as, industry, schools, custodial services, mental health facilities, GP practices and more.

Mental health and learning disability settings

We recognise each mental health and learning disability setting has its own unique challenges, which is why we have a dedicated team to focus on client requirements. Our team of mental health clinical specialists work with our wider teams to ensure clients receive the most suitable service. We can support a variety of inpatient settings, help with crisis cover and support individuals living with a learning disability, to access their communities.

Clinical research and testing

We recruit nursing professionals to the highest standard. That’s why we’re a trusted staffing partner to clinical research and medical device companies across the globe. Whether the requirement is for a nurse on site, or in the community providing services to research subjects enrolled in a clinical trial, we can help.
