Medical Station is an expert healthcare staffing solution, experienced in the supply of high-quality temporary, contract and permanent candidates into the NHS and other private sector healthcare organisations. Our healthcare recruitment services are based in Taunton but operate Nationwide. Our reputation was established on our ability to supply experienced medical and clerical staff on a short notice, last-minute basis, when all else has let them down.
We've been successful in supporting healthcare establishments and, to this day, we pride ourselves on being able to deliver that same emergency service; 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Medical Station's stringent vetting, compliance and governance procedures make us one of the most reliable and comprehensive staffing solutions in the healthcare recruitment industry. Our ability to supply the highest calibre of staff is a reflection of the high standards we adhere to. We've made it our passion to keep ourselves up to date with all updates from TDA, NHSi, Monitor and all the frameworks. This adherence to industry standards enables us to provide the highest quality nursing recruitment, based in Taunton but operating wherever you need staff.
Medical Station is the agency of choice for many healthcare providers. We have a national database of nurses, a responsive bookings process and advanced IT Systems. Our people take pride in representing our business and that shows in their appearance; they are always clearly recognisable by their branded uniform and name badge. If you would like to trial our Taunton-based healthcare recruitment services, or test our ability to supply, you can, with piece of mind. We do not charge cancellation fees, VAT, mileage or accommodation. A booking can be cancelled at any time, with complete freedom of choice and maximum flexibility. We genuinely believe our business offers a complete solution.
We mirror the needs of the healthcare sector. When we say we are open 24/7, we mean we employ people, physically, day and night, in our offices – not as an on-call service. This means that you can expect a far better response than you would if someone was trying to meet your requirements whilst working from home.
We operate to NHS framework, CQC, and DOH guidelines. Medical Station perform quarterly internal audits to ensure ongoing compliance, as well as completing weekly reports to prevent the expiration of mandatory certificates. Regular training and retraining are a standard element of our operation.
One highly-skilled and knowledgeable consultant will be your main point of contact, as part of our healthcare recruitment services in Taunton. They will get to know your organisation's needs and conform to how you operate, saving you time and tedium whenever you need to employ a new staff member. This affords you reliability, consistency and, most importantly, continuity of service.
When it comes to registering new staff, they are pre-screened by phone, before being invited to a face-to-face interview. If successful (1 in 3 success rates, currently) our specialist team of medical recruiters will chase documents to make the new staff member compliant, apply for a CRB, book occupational health and arrange training, in addition to applying for references.
All new staff are subjected to a written and verbal examination and a drug calculation test. They are also asked to comment on a number of scenario-based questions. The compliance team reviews the completed application and, if it meets the necessary requirements, only then will the member of staff be passed to the bookings team for shifts.
With our Taunton-based healthcare recruitment services, we can offer a Managed Service, Master Vendor, Preferred Supplier arrangement and will happily operate under an SLA with your organisation, should you wish. As your recruitment experts, we adapt to your organisation's needs.
We do not charge VAT on any of our services and have no set cancellation fees. This means that, if you are unable to reclaim VAT, you will already have a 20% saving when you use us. In addition, we offer our customers maximum flexibility so, if you book a member of staff and then find your own person to fill the vacancy, you can cancel without charge (subject to T's and C's).
Medical Station offer a monthly report on the active level or our services. Whether you wish to have this discussed in a face-to-face meeting, over the phone or via email, we provide you with extensive management information and reporting. This enables you to analyse and monitor your organisations relationship with us, on a month-by-month basis.
