Hallam Medical is a healthcare staffing business which deploys highly qualified nurses, largely Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Community Care Specialists and Telephone Triage Clinical Advisors. The Company is based in Sheffield and supports healthcare providers throughout the UK. Recent UK Government initiatives have driven treatment of patients to be community-centric rather than hospital focussed. This has increased demand for services from primary care providers which Hallam addresses. Owing to the ageing profile of GPs and community-based nurses there is an increasing shortage of highly qualified primary care staff which results in high demand for suitably qualified agency staff.
