The UK urgently needs more qualified Nurses; To care for patients and reduce temporary staffing spend. Our Mission is to solve the Nursing staffing crisis.

 

Our Vision is to solve it with integrity, transparency and accountability, linking strategic needs at a Trust level to operational needs in each ward whilst caring for and respecting the individual candidate Nurses. 


We supply registered overseas nurses to the NHS to fill the urgent 40,000+ nationwide vacancies. We manage the entire process on behalf of the Trust and personally advocate for the individual Nurses every step of the way. Every nurse and cohort of nurses will deliver sustained financial savings to the NHS and increase consistency of care quality.

“Since the inception of the NHS, our patients have benefited from the skill, compassion and commitment of international nurses. In the short to medium term, given existing vacancy rates and the lead times for training new nurses, we will need to increase international recruitment significantly to secure rapid increases in supply. This will require refocusing our efforts to ensure that the system for overseas recruitment is effective, that employers are supported and that we benefit from economies of scale”
