Welcome to this supplement, which focuses on the work of NHS Professionals. I hope it provides you with an insight into what we do and how we support nursing staff wishing to work in a flexible environment.
As the leading supplier of flexible workers to the NHS, we can provide a wide choice of short- and long-term placements - from ad-hoc shifts to placements for up to 11 months - at over 60 hospitals across the country.
We are now the largest recruiter and leading supplier of flexible workers in the NHS. Every day we recruit 52 new staff and a new starter is added to our bank team every 28 minutes of the year.
Whatever the reasons for wanting a flexible career in the NHS, we can find a perfect fit!
What’s more, as the primary provider of flexible staff at these trusts, our staff get the first choice of all available shifts and placements.
Through our regular surveys, details of which are also featured in this supplement, we believe we have both an understanding of the reasons nursing staff choose to work in a flexible way and what we can do to ensure our service matches their needs.
