Bridging clinical insight with medical staffing expertise

30 May 2020 By Michael Bowyer


Medical Staffing provides staffing solutions that are flexible and tailored to an organisation’s unique requirements. During the difficulty and turmoil caused by the outbreak of COVID-19 we have made it a priority to find ways to support the healthcare community in providing unparalleled care to those in need. Many organisations are experiencing issues with the increased need for primary care and triage clinicians, including a leading London provider of Integrated Urgent Care services. As the only providers with senior clinicians available at this capacity we were quick to propose a partnership to help them.

The challenge:

Due to the recent shift in patient demand from face-to-face consultations to remote triage due to the Coronavirus, many organisations are experiencing a bottleneck from trying to process the huge influx of clinicians, and our client was no exception. Faced with the time delay posed by their limited internal resources to process clearing and interviewing clinicians and getting them onto the rota, our client needed extra support to onboard clinicians in a timely and efficient way.

The solution:

By utilising our understanding of the clearance process, the organisation’s logistics and their unique requirements, Medical Staffing proposed that their own Medical Director (a former GP) and Head of Clinical Performance (a former nurse and clinical director) clear and interview GPs and nurses respectively to speed up the process and alleviate the bottleneck.

By leveraging our 15 years of experience in providing staffing solutions to the medical community, we were able to shoulder much of the hard work and organise the entire interviewing process to find the right talent to suit our clients needs.

The outcome:

Already, 30 compliant ANPs and GPs have been placed on our clients rota to provide triage and remote triage to patients in London, and as this partnership will continue over the following months, we expect this number to grow. With the higher volume of clinicians being cleared and placed on the rota, patients now have better access to primary care.

If you are a healthcare provider in need of extra support sourcing exceptional primary and acute care staff, or require clinical assessment services during the pandemic, Medical Staffing is pleased to offer fast and flexible solutions. Please get in touch to discuss your unique requirements and we will endeavour to provide bespoke solutions to suit your needs.
