We work in partnership with over 55 NHS trusts to help them to reduce their reliance on agencies by providing a service that combines an intimate understanding of the trusts’ temporary workforce requirements with the reassurance of a safe, quality and reliable supply of cost-effective temporary staff.

And because NHSP is wholly owned by the Department of Health and Social Care, all our profits are reinvested back into the NHS.

Our business was founded on nursing and midwifery, but now we specialise in much more. Right now, we have over 130,000 members registered on our bank from various roles, grades and specialities. Our bank members fill around 26 million hours for our clients each year, working flexibly around their lifestyles by choosing the hours that suit them.
