About Thornbury Nursing Services

The Thornbury standard: exceptional service; exceptional nurses

Our mission: “To provide the best professional solution to meet the requirements of each of our clients whilst recognising and rewarding the exceptional skills and efforts of our nurses.”

For over 30 years, Thornbury nursing has been recognised as the agency you can rely on in an emergency. Our experience and expertise lies in providing the very best agency nurses at very short notice. Our clients rely on us when all other options have been exhausted. With increasing pressures on staffing levels and putting patient needs first, a Thornbury nurse is always on hand to ensure the highest quality care can be delivered.

Our nurses are our reputation. We recruit the very best professionals who embrace our values and ethos. Each and every nurse is flexible, highly experienced in their field and willing to travel long distances, often at short notice, to support our clients. This enthusiasm and commitment to nursing, teamed with exceptional skills and passion is hard to come by. Our pay rates reflect the nature of our work and our expectations. We demand the greatest commitment from each and every nurse, as witnessed by demanding registration and compliancy requirements.

Our clients

NHS Trusts, private hospitals, local authorities, private nursing homes, community packages, mental health and learning difficulty units, ISTCs, schools, prisons, social services, industry, research, GP practices, medical device companies, and many more.

Expert, nurse-led recruitment teams

Our recruitment teams are led by experienced nurses, who we believe are best placed to recruit like-minded professionals to represent the Thornbury name. Each agency worker completes a rigorous recruitment process ensuring they have the most appropriate, recent and relevant experience for their field. In addition we offer our nurses free mandatory CPD and PREP study opportunities to enable them to keep up-to-date with the latest best practice – something that is ordinarily only available for those in substantive posts.

Quality and compliance

Our reputation for quality is paramount and we recognise that quality care is driven by quality governance. To that end, and to augment our own internal quarterly audits, we annually contract with Neuven Audit Solutions. Neuven provide compliance audits for temporary agencies across all disciplines within the private and public sectors. These reports are available on request to provide independent evidence that quality is at the heart of all we do.
