At Medilink Nursing, we’ve been a Care Staff Agency for over 25 years, helping Homes to provide the quality care that their residents deserve. Thanks to our thorough recruitment process, our care staff agency can provide you with quality, experienced Nurses and Healthcare Assistants.
On this page, you can find out exactly what kinds of care staff agency services we provide, as well as what measures we take to ensure we only take on the best people for the job!
What Care Staff Agency Services do we Provide?
We understand how important staffing levels and good timetabling is in a Residential Home setting, which is why we offer a wide variety of services to help your Home run smoothly, including:
Last-Minute Shift Requests
Do you need someone to cover a last-minute shift? We’ve all been there – maybe someone hasn’t turned up at the shift handover, maybe they’ve come down with an illness (or a hangover…) – whatever the matter is, just give us a call and we’ll arrange for somebody to be there, pronto.
Have you got staff on parental leave, or with holidays coming up? As soon as you know about it, tell us, and we’ll find the cover you need. One less thing for you to worry about in the future!
If you’re needing something a bit more long-term, we can provide Nurses and HCAs on a semi-permanent contractual basis, for one year or more.
This is one of our more popular services, as it allows for a great deal of flexibility. Maybe you need some cover every Monday, or every second Friday. No problem! Block bookings gives you this option without you having to make a new request each week.
Specialised 1-to-1 Care
This service is for Homes whose residents need some extra attention. If you need specialist cover, let us know, and we’ll find you the best candidate for the job.
Your residents will get the high-quality, friendly care they deserve from our Nurses and Carers, who are highly trained in areas such as:
◉ Learning and Physical Disabilities.
◉ Sensory Impairments.
◉ Palliative Care.
◉ Overnight Care.
◉ Mental Health.
Our Care Staff Agency Recruitment Process
We’ve built a reputation on the quality of our staff, and quality staff means quality care for your residents.
As well as ensuring that the applicant has the necessary UK-based experience, we make sure that they’re the right person. Would we want them to look after us? If the answer is no, then we wouldn’t want them to look after those under your care (and needless to say, they won’t be working with us!).
Once we’re satisfied they’re the right sort of person, we check their references, and carry out an Enhanced DBS Check with Barred List. We can quickly handle all DBS services internally thanks to our sister company, Aaron’s Department, which specialises heavily in that area.
After all this has been carried out, we provide new starters with CPD accredited training (which is then refreshed annually).
A Care Staff Agency For Your Home
No matter what you need, we’re here for you – every day of the week.
Our Head Office is open 365 days a year (366 on leap years!), including bank holidays, from 6:00am until 10:30pm. So, if you’re in need of our services, or have any questions for us, just give us a call on 0113 877 6383, or email email@example.com.
