Medacs Healthcare key supplier for CapitalNurse International Recruitment Programme

Our permanent nursing teams are proud to be recruiting international nurses for nine NHS trusts in London via the CapitalNurse programme. 
Medacs Healthcare was awarded the contract by the NHS London Procurement Partnership following a tender process to appoint a consortium of six nursing agencies to recruit overseas nurses.  
Launched in 2015, the CapitalNurse programme is jointly led by NHS England and Improvement and Health Education England (HEE). This new consortium supports their plans to increase ethical international recruitment and boost nursing numbers in line with the NHS People Plan.
There are currently just under 9,000 permanent nursing vacancies in the London area and this programme will help to relieve long-term staff shortages for nine separate NHS trusts.A new website has been created to showcase all agencies and provide information for overseas nurses, with a portal for participating trusts to manage their pipelines. 
Simona Bertolo, Head of International Recruitment said: 
“We are proud to be part of the CapitalNurse programme. Since August we have already welcomed over 100 nurses into the UK with hundreds more arriving imminently.  Based on our current pipelines we are confident we can source the volumes needed to support this project”
