NSSA launches New Nursing Agency in the UK

NSSA (Nursing Services of South Africa) has launched a new nursing agency for the recruitment and placement of nurses in the UK.

Particular areas of specialisation for Nursing Services of the UK include its 24-7 service 365 days of the year: agency nurses and healthcare providers can contact a member of the agency support team 24 hours a day. The agency has invested in one of the most advanced ICT systems to manage compliance, supported by a specialist in-house team to follow up references and verify credentials. The ICT system is used to ensure a fast and accurate match of a candidate’s qualifications, experience and location with the needs of each healthcare provider who requires staff.
Once medical staff have met compliance requirements, Nursing Services of the UK provides personnel for temporary and longer term assignments in NHS Trusts, private hospitals, GP surgeries and with other healthcare service providers nationwide.

Established over 60 years ago, NSSA has long experience as one of the leading nursing agencies in the recruitment, management and assignment of medical staff in the demanding healthcare staffing environment of South Africa.

NSSA was acquired in 2006 by Ambition 24hours and the A24 Group, amongst the UK's most innovative temporary nursing agencies. The A24 Group was the first healthcare agency in the UK, and then South Africa, to offer a 24-7 service, 365 days a year. The agency has completed the biggest ICT support project of its kind in the sector, say the Directors:

"We have brought to the industry all the benefits of the latest technology for the efficient and safe management, monitoring and verification of medical staffing people. This means that we can instantly match our clients needs with the most suitable, qualified nurses, and enable candidates to better manage their work-life balance through a host of on-line facilities. Technology underpins the helpful and friendly human interface that we can offer through our trained, experienced team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

"We have a firm policy of not seeking to recruit staff from Africa for our UK operations. This is because we hear at first hand from doctors and nurses the consequences of this type of activity by staffing agencies and employers from developed countries - not only recruiters in the UK, but also those in the USA, Ireland, Canada and Australia in particular. Our goal is to ensure that we can bring our international experience in health staffing to alleviate the staffing issues here in the UK."

Nursing Services of the UK is now registering nurses to fill a wide range of vacancies immediately throughout the UK, for all grades of nurses.
