Mission and vision
Our mission: To support health providers deliver the highest standards of nursing care when no one else can.
Our vision: To be the trusted provider of exceptional nurses to the NHS and private health sector, often at extremely short notice.
Nothing should compromise nursing quality. That’s why the Scottish Nursing Guild is always on hand to bring exceptional nurses to NHS and private care organisations, often at extreme short notice. With over 20 years’ experience in responding to last-minute requirements, our service is fast, reliable, professional and most importantly trusted. We care passionately about our nurses and the difference they make to the lives of patients and clients.
Our nurses are our reputation. We recruit only the very best professionals, and only those who embrace our ethos. Every nurse is flexible, highly experienced and willing to travel long distances, often at short notice.
This enthusiasm and commitment to nursing, teamed with exceptional skills, is hard to come by. We demand the greatest commitment from each nurse, as our rigorous recruitment process demonstrates. In return, our pay rates reflect these high expectations.
Expert, nurse-led recruitment teams
Our recruitment teams are led by experienced nurses, who we believe are best placed to recruit like-minded professionals. Our recruitment process ensures that every nurse has the most recent and relevant experience, and in addition we offer our nurses voluntary training, CPD and PREP study opportunities, This means they stay up-to-date with the latest best practice while enhancing their skills – something usually only available for those in substantive posts.
Quality and compliance
We know that quality care is driven by quality governance. We run our own quarterly audits, but we also ask specialist auditors Neuven Audit Solutions to audit us annually. View our latest audit here.
