Primary Care Recruitment Ltd has been awarded a place on NHS National Clinical Staffing Framework

Primary Care has been awarded a place on the new National Clinical Staffing Framework for the NHS.

Being awarded a place on Lots 1 & 2 of the National Clinical Staffing Framework, developed for the NHS by the NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership[1], means that Primary Care can supply temporary, permanent, and fixed term staff to clinical positions in the NHS.

Primary Care successfully underwent an independent audit of our services and met the criteria for providing qualified clinical staff who can give high quality patient care at rates within the pay caps set by the government. These pay caps have been introduced to help the NHS control spiralling agency staffing costs.

Primary Care Director Joanne Wood said “We are delighted to have been awarded a place on the National Clinical Staffing Framework. We understand the challenges being faced by the NHS and are keen to help the NHS to provide quality patient care.”

 


[1] The NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership is a collaboration of four NHS procurement hubs - NHS Commercial Solutions, NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative, East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub and NHS London Procurement Partnership

Happy pets make happy people…

Primary Care are delighted to sponsor the Dogs Trust and the RSPCA (www.dogstrust.org.uk and www.rspca.org.uk)

The UK is a nation of animal lovers and many of us know the happiness and companionship pets can bring and whilst professionally trained helper animals, such as guide dogs for the blind, offer obvious benefits to humans, more recently many studies have shown that pets can have real benefits for your mental health.

In 1859, Florence Nightingale wrote, “A small pet animal is often an excellent companion for the sick, for long chronic cases especially. A pet bird in a cage is sometimes the only pleasure of an invalid confined for years to the same room. If he can feed and clean the animal himself, he ought always to be encouraged to do so.

Ebola Virus outbreak *update 20/01/2015

Update 20/01/2015 – Monitoring period for passengers who travelled on flights with the UK nurse diagnosed with Ebola has ended. 

Following the diagnosis of Ebola in a healthcare worker in the UK Public Health England (PHE) undertook to trace and contact other passengers on the flights returning from Sierra Leone on 28 December and who travelled on flight AT0800 from Casablanca to London, and transferred at Heathrow to flight BA1478 to Glasgow.  Although risk of infection to other passengers was considered very low, PHE and Health Protection Scotland have contacted all passengers on these flights to make them aware that a fellow passenger had contracted the Ebola disease, although they would have been in the very early stages and extremely unlikely to be infectious.

Improving care for people with Dementia

While it is increasingly common, dementia is still not very well understood and the stigma attached means that often people don't ask for help or just put the symptoms down to ageing.  

There are currently around 800,000 people in the UK suffering from dementia, at an annual cost of £23billion.  This number is estimated to double, and costs treble by 2040.   A lot can be done to help people cope with the symptoms of dementia, but at the moment the diagnosis rate in England is only 51%.
