Allied Health Professionals, Healthcare Scientists & Personal Social Services

NHS Professionals (NHSP), owned by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), works in partnership with hospital trusts. We provide a bank of highly skilled temporary workers who are looking for a long-term placement or who want to work flexibly within the NHS.

Our breadth of recruitment expertise and being a key supplier for many clinical placements to the NHS means we offer a range of placements for Allied Health Professionals (AHP), Healthcare Scientists (HCS) and Personal Social Services (PSS). We can provide you with a great opportunity to provide high quality care working in a number of clinical settings such as acute, mental health or community hospitals within your chosen occupation.

Working through the NHSP bank as an Allied Health Professional or Healthcare Scientist means Trusts do not have to rely on recruitment agencies. Right now, we have over 130,000 members registered on our bank in various roles, grades, and specialities, saving the NHS over £70 million each year. This money is then reinvested back into the NHS.
