Your expert medical recruitment consultancy
Primary Care People is a leading recruiter of medical professionals in the UK, sourcing skilled GPs, Nurses, Pharmacists, Mental Health Professionals and Allied Health Professionals to CCGs, Federations, NHS practices, MOD, Prisons and Private Health Care organisations.
How it all started
We’ve come a long way from our relatively small beginnings in 2013. Since then Primary Care People has grown from just three people in a makeshift office to the award winning consultancy that it is today.
Our commitment has always been to offer the highest standards of service in Primary Care, whether we are supporting the NHS or the private sector. In order to achieve this we thoroughly research the primary healthcare sector so that we know it inside out and understand how to serve it best.
Every day, all day, we talk to GPs and our clients, including practice managers, CCGs, Foundations, senior executives in the NHS and important organisations such as the Royal College of General Practitioners. It’s from this level of knowledge and expertise we’ve been able to grow rapidly and create initiatives that are actually changing the UK’s primary care system.
Redesigning the workforce
In addition to placing our GP and nursing candidates in good jobs suited to their individual talents and needs, we have also expanded our recruitment activities to encompass a number of other specialised skills that can really relieve the stress of overburdened and overworked GPs and surgeries. Our pharmacists, advanced practitioner nurses, physiotherapists and mental health nurses, amongst others, provide a General Practice with vital specialist skills so that GPs can spend more time treating the patients who need them the most. This is transforming patient care and a patient’s experience in the primary care sector.
Our personal service
It’s our mission to get more GPs and nurses working in the NHS, to help Practices become more efficient and cost saving. We focus on improving the lives of our candidates and enabling them to give their patients better care, despite the many challenges they face including funding, indemnity cover and recruitment issues. We are in the process of solving all of these.
We live and breathe truly personal service at Primary Care People, whether it’s for our candidates or our clients. We say ‘caring for you so you can care for others’- and we mean it.
We know that there are many fully qualified GPs who are unable to work because they have been ill, or have had minor misconduct issues which have not been substantiated. Whatever the cause, many ‘remedial GPs’ are desperate to come back into the healthcare system but they are faced with numerous obstacles, including the astronomical cost of indemnity cover. We have set up GP Guardian, a not for profit organisation with the sole purpose of getting as many hard working GPs back into the job they love as quickly as we can
Our aim is to revolutionise the Primary Care Sector and make a lasting difference.
