Walbrook PR, which provides high quality Financial PR and Investor Relations to Small Cap and AIM listed companies, announces its appointment to Healthperm Resourcing Ltd, the healthcare recruitment business which has been established to address the significant shortfalls in healthcare professionals in the UK and UAE.
Healthperm is working to become the trusted provider of permanent experienced nurses and other healthcare professionals, initially from the Philippines, into the UK and the UAE. There are an estimated 200,000 unemployed nurses in the Philippines, which provides a strong supply of quality, qualified and available nurses. The recruitment of permanently employed overseas nurses is more effective, both from a cost perspective and in providing a solution to the long-term staffing shortages of the UK and UAE healthcare markets and beyond.
Healthperm placed its first overseas nurses into the Royal Hospital for Neuro-Disability in London in Q3 2015.
Since Q4 2015, Healthperm has been conducting numerous interview sessions with candidates sourced from the Philippines, as well as business development meetings with NHS trusts in the UK and homecare providers in the UAE. Through this process, the Proposed Directors have identified opportunities to recruit over 4,500 healthcare professionals into over 20 NHS trusts in the UK and the homecare sector in the UAE.
In January 2016 Healthperm signed a supply agreement with one of the five largest UK NHS Trusts for the placement of permanent healthcare staff. Following the appointment of a UAE-based business development director, Healthperm has secured mandates to supply over 80 homecare nurses to three homecare nurse providers in the UAE.
