Expert support from an established and reliable market leading primary care staffing specialist

We fulfil in excess of 25,000 hours per month – could our candidates provide additional ad-hoc or on-going cover for your services too?

Our primary care division is a large and core component of our business. We currently help cover rota gaps and staff shortages across the UK with locum and permanent staff. We work with large and small providers fulfilling last minute and advanced notice requests with appropriately skilled, experienced and competent candidates. Merco is a framework approved agency and each of our candidates are compliant to NHS Employer Check Standards.

If your planned or unplanned service requires staff on a locum or permanent basis, we can take care of it. Our database of 10,000+ candidates includes GPs, GPwSI, advanced nurse practitioners, emergency nurse practitioners, emergency care practitioners, paramedics, streaming nurses, triage nurses and community nurses. We can also cover your general nurse, allied health professional and pharmacy requirements too.
