About Thornbury Nursing Services

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 Thornbury Nursing Services is always on hand to bring exceptional nurses to NHS and private care organisations, often at extreme short notice. With over 30 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 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.

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 voluntary training, 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.
