Private sector

Our dedicated private healthcare team focuses solely on meeting the exacting requirements of our clients operating across this sector. Understanding that appropriate candidate matching is key, we’ll work closely with you to gain an in-depth understanding of your staffing needs. We’ll provide a truly tailored service and staff who’ll deliver exceptional levels of compassionate care.

Many of our nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants (HCAs) are already working in private healthcare or have expressed a particular interest in doing so. Our extremely skilled and compassionate nurses have a high degree of knowledge and experience, making them the right choice to support your staffing needs, whether in a hospital, clinic setting, assisting in clinical trials, health and product promotions, telephone advice services or schools.

Our database of 22,000 contains in excess of 7,000 experienced midwives, nurses and HCAs across all specialisms including general, ITU, PICU, NICU, SCBU, theatre, mental health and research community. Whatever your requirement, we are perfectly placed to provide you with the staff you need quickly and professionally.
