Who are NHS Professionals?

If a hospital cannot supply staff on a ward or area, due to increased demand, sickness, or common staff shortages, they need to call upon a flexible work force. We work with trusts, providing back office support and recruitment to develop a 'bank' of highly skilled workers (bank members) who want to work flexibly with the NHS. By providing bank members to a number of trusts, we are currently saving the NHS £70 million per year through the dedicated work of our passionate teams.
