All of our nurses are highly experienced with proven track records in delivering excellence in care for both NHS and private healthcare providers.
We recognise that most client needs will be different and will require a tailored approach. This is why we carefully select our teams based on the best combination of skill required to ensure the highest quality and most efficient delivery of clinical support. This is a key aspect of our insourcing service.
How our nurses work with yours
The success of each project relies heavily on establishing the trust and confidence of your nursing staff. We understand that staff can be wary of external clinicians and nurses and whether local policies and procedures will be adhered to. Nicola Ellis, Clinical Services Manager at 18 Week Support understands these unique challenges. Nicola appoints, trains and supports Nurse Coordinators and oversees every insourcing project in which we participate.
She also receives feedback from the work carried out within each NHS Trust and reports back to our advisory board. The performance of individual nurses is monitored and managed appropriately.
Nicola also plays an important role in staff recruitment. She scrutinises each individual application and employment reference for all new nurses joining the 18 Week Support team. New appointments are only made following the careful review of qualifications, competencies and references and a range of other documentation, as well as face-to-face interviews.
The role of Senior Nurse Coordinators
Each bespoke solution for an individual NHS Trust has a designated Senior Nurse as a Coordinator who leads all sessions.
Nurse Coordinators are trained and empowered to lead our team of nurses and consultants in unfamiliar surroundings. They provide a key link between our services and the Trust’s clinical team.
