For us, being a recognised and appointed framework organisation means we are able to ensure the best roles for our candidates to meet their individual requirements. We cannot emphasize enough the value we place on quality service and ultimately, patient care. It is at the end of the day all about the best practice we can all shape to deliver for safe, effective patient care.
You might well ask, why ProMedical?
Well, we are about people, about putting people first and to achieve that there must be standards to be reached and upheld, processes to go through and quality to safeguard. We can deliver that by achieving best practice within our industry, by working
within a framework approved by the government, and by structuring our entire business concept around patient care by putting people first.
Our CEO, Altin Biba says:
We are thrilled to be awarded the newly launched Workforce Alliance, this being a testament to the critical role the ProMedical people continue to play in providing sustainable healthcare staffing solutions to the NHS.
Our country continues to go through an unprecedented time in our lives, during the first wave of Covid-19 we stood shoulder to shoulder with the NHS and enabled our customers to deliver critical patient care in 269 hospitals across the UK. Now, as we
enter another phase of a national challenge, ProMedical is proud to stand by our customers and are ready to deliver crucial patient care in partnership with the NHS.
