Healthcare Sector in-demand for contractors

As we pass the first peak of the pandemic and lockdown restrictions start to ease, routine and non-emergency procedures will be rescheduled.  What does that mean for the recruitment of Healthcare worker?

In line with national guidance and to prepare for the impact of the pandemic, hospitals instigated emergency procedures closing their doors to any planned, non-urgent and routine procedures. Thus enabling the workforce to have the capacity to focus on providing urgent care to the critically ill and allowing unnecessary contact to stop the spread of the Covid-19. 

During the pandemic, many agency workers were furloughed or their contracts temporarily suspended. Staffing requirements were reduced due to the decline of routine and non-emergency services.

With ‘normal service’ resuming, there is set to be an influx in demand for all medical workers. As lockdown eases, people will be able to socialise and have the confidence to return to hospitals as they feel more comfortable with the decline in Covid-19. However, there will be a backlog of patients needing care. Non-Emergency operations and consultations will resume, but with a compounded waitlist from the past 3 months. We predict that there will be a huge initial demand for medical professionals… Ideal opportunity for agency workers.
