Nursing and Temporary Staffing Best Value Group

The Nursing and Temporary Staffing Best Value Group has a longstanding and proven track record.

“I have enjoyed being part of the group for the last 4 years as it has enabled me to meet and keep in touch with other members who have an in depth knowledge and understanding  of the unique, complex and demanding job that we all do. I have learnt a lot from the various speakers and it has been reassuring to discover that even though the group members are spread across the country we have the same issues to deal with on a day to day basis and by sharing best practice we can bring new ideas and solutions back to each of our individual Trusts.” – Additional Staffing Manager, Mersey Care NHS Trust





Facilitator: Dale Atkins
Coordinator: Gemma Aitchison

“This is my first year of membership to this group and I have thoroughly enjoyed this networking opportunity – having direct access to NHSI, CQC and JP Martineau have provided some excellent topical discussions. It is reassuring to be part of a group that are experiencing similar issues and concerns that reflect a National Picture of the challenges on Temporary Staffing. The exchange of ideas and best practice is at the heart of this group and it is supported by an enthusiastic group of like-minded managers. I would encourage anyone interested in temporary staffing to join the group and look forward to a further round of discussions.”

Membership of the Nursing & Temporary Staffing BVG has been excellent value for money. The year’s membership cost my trust something in the order of £500 but I went away from the meetings with time-saving ideas, resources, lessons learnt, information, etc. This will have saved my trust this sum of money many times over. (Not to mention all the network support between meetings). For me it’s a ‘no-brainer’!”
