What’s new in healthcare recruitment and a thank you for being our reader

Well, we’re now pulling away from Summer and heading into Autumn and let’s be honest Christmas isn’t that far away now. I don’t think anyone could have anticipated the year that we’ve just had and nothing could have prepared us for it. On a positive note, we’ve learned a lot of lessons and are in a much better position to face the potential second spike that may be on the way.

At My Healthcare Recruit we’ve pushed on through the last six months and we’re very proud of the fact that our international nurses are now finally starting to arrive in large numbers the UK to take their positions on the frontline alongside so many others that are employed in the NHS and private healthcare sector … it’s so good to see them.

To give you an idea, we’ve had to deal with cancelled flights, no fly zones, delayed visas, deployment bans, Covid positive candidates, quarantine periods and even the cancellation of grocery shopping for newly arrived nurses. But we’ve overcome these issues with back up candidates, a network team of support people, diversified candidate pipelines and the rebooking of a huge number of flights.

This has resulted in over 60 nurses still being deployed to over 10 different locations in the last four weeks and in total we are on track to deploy 100 nurses within 100 days… no mean feat. It’s been challenging for everyone but we committed to delivering nurses to you so that’s what we did.

Lastly on a hugely positive note for the business, we’re pleased and incredibly proud to say that we’re now up and running on the Health Trust Europe (HTE) Framework as an approved provider of International Permanent Recruitment of nurses, doctors and allied health professionals to NHS Trusts. Following a comprehensive and competitive tender, we were successful and are looking forward to working with the Employers who use this Framework as a reference point for trusted suppliers.

In order to say thank you for your support, please continue reading if you’d like details of our free draw that we’re running this month. It’s a little gift from us to say thank you for being a reader and it’s from the wonderful Hotel Chocolat.”
