How long have you worked for Cromwell Medical?
I have worked here for five years – five great years may I add! I started in compliance and moved into the bookings side of the business so I have a very strong understanding of what our nurses need and expect.
What do you love about your job?
I am incredibly lucky to love my job. Of course it’s the people you work with on a daily basis, but it really is amazing to have the sort of relationships with our nurses that I do. I love the pressure of being responsible for getting our nurses working!
What region do you cover?
My team and I cover the London area, as well as across the country ranging from Poole to Norwich, so a pretty substantial area! We cover all specialities including A&E, Paediatric, ITU and RGN.
Describe the relationship you have with our nurses.
They are my extended family! Working with the majority of our nurses over so many years has meant that naturally you take a care and interest in their own life which just helps me make sure we do our job properly.
What advice would you give to someone thinking about becoming an agency nurse?
Whether you’re looking for full-time or part-time work in any situation you need to be able to take that first step; take that leap of faith. Of course agency work helps to pay the bills, but it does provide you with an element of flexibility and you can most certainly plan ahead.
I can think of one situation where I ran through the whole process start to finish with a new nurse and within three months, due to the extra money and flexibility of agency work, she was able to go on holiday with her family, quicker than if she was not an agency worker. We can help you to achieve your goals, that’s our job and we are not here to waste your time but to get you out to work. I can reassure you, agency work is definitely worth it.
