Case Study: Spire Healthcare

My Healthcare Recruit has collaborated with Spire Healthcare to provide a pipeline of 100 nurses within 12 months. Below we examine the recruitment issues that Spire faced, the reasons they chose to work with My Healthcare Recruit, and the successful improvements achieved as a result of our ongoing partnership.

Spire Healthcare is a leading provider of private healthcare in the United Kingdom. Like other healthcare employers in the UK, they were struggling with a shortage of nurses. They had attempted international nurse recruitment in the past, but conversion rates had been poor.

The Resourcing Team at Spire needed to partner with an agency that could collaborate with them and provide a tailored response to sourcing clinical staff across their network.

How We Did It

My Healthcare did a number of things to ensure a strong, consistent pipeline for Spire:

  • Provided only English Language passed candidates for interview
  • Pre-screened candidates on video to save time for busy clinical managers
  • Offered relocation services to assist hospitals with arrival logistics
  • Co-ordinated OSCE support to ensure strong pass rates for candidates
  • Provided a full service to assist nurses with the relocation process including everything from organising the meet and greet to supporting candidates with opening bank accounts
  • Set-up and ran specialist Bootcamps to generate the specialist skills that were required at various sites

As a result, nurse deployments have been consistently smooth and efficient.

  • Pipeline of 100 nurses within 12 months

  • Deployments across 16 Spire Healthcare hospitals
  • 100% IELTS passed nurses
  • Reduction of aged requisitions from c130 days to c25 days

My Healthcare Recruit have sourced candidates for 16 different Spire hospitals nationally, who have also been happy with their recruits.

“We have been delighted with the calibre of nurses we have received via My Healthcare Recruit. Their adaptability, work ethic and clinical skills were exactly what we were looking for.” – Spire Matron

My Healthcare Recruit are now also recruiting for other healthcare positions such as Radiographers within Spire.

“We have been really impressed by how stress‑free My Healthcare Recruit have made the international nurse recruitment process for us.

Our vacancy rate has been reduced considerably, we have reduced our reliance on temporary staff and they have been a pleasure to work with – very responsive and adaptable to our needs.

They have delivered as they promised and I would happily recommend them to other healthcare employers.”
