Newcross Healthcare’s Hereford branch has kicked off a recruitment programme to meet the growing demand for care services in the region.
The care provider is hiring and training nurses and healthcare assistants to deliver its specialist complex care services to people in their own homes.
The news comes four months after Newcross Healthcare, one of Britain’s largest independent healthcare providers, launched its complex care service in eight new locations, including Hereford.
The service includes learning disability support, home ventilation management, palliative care, and spinal injury and head injury rehabilitation.
Care plans are tailored to the individual’s requirements and delivered by highly trained clinical teams around the clock.
Steph Nicol, complex care manager at Newcross Healthcare in Hereford said: “Our service is about meeting the specific and often complicated care needs of the individuals we care for, by a highly qualified healthcare team with specialist knowledge.
“As demand grows, we are looking to recruit and train those already in the sector looking to specialise in complex care, or those looking to enter the care sector for the first time. We have so far this month trained seven new healthcare staff and are assessing enquiries from new candidates daily.”
Mandy Hamilton, head of Complex Care Operations at Newcross Healthcare said: “We’re delighted that our complex care business is growing. To accommodate this, we are scaling up our recruitment efforts and training up a new team of complex care specialists. Hereford branch is doing a great job of attracting new talent to the business and training them to a high standard.”
