We are pleased to report that we have recently undergone an independent audit process on behalf of the London Procurement Programme. We were delighted, though not surprised, to be informed that we have passed very well, scoring 1306 marks out of a total of 1337 marks available; giving a pass mark of 97.68% . This categorises us by Nueven, the independent auditing firm used by the LPP as “PLATINUM”, the highest award available to be bestowed upon an agency.
Here is what some of our candidates and clients have to say about working with us:
"I joined Capital as an agency nurse in 2010 and I have worked on both a part-time and full-time basis. During my registration and interview process the staff at Capital had a very friendly manner. They were very helpful and I felt comfortable during my interview process. My favourite part about being a Capital Nurse is the flexibility it gives you – I can be my own boss! The variety is fantastic – every day is different and I really thrive on that.
I'm a confident person and I can talk to anyone so I love going into different settings and being part of other nursing teams. I would never have accumulated the wealth of experienced or skills if I hadn’t chosen to work as an agency nurse with Capital. It’s been amazing! I love a challenge.
The training team at Capital have helped me keep up-to-date with Mandatory training requirements and the best thing is you can choose when you want to come in to do a course. I always try and be an ambassador for the company when I’m on shift – I often say 'Capital is the best and friendliest agency' which is an opinion I'm proud to voice."
Elsa Simoes, RN1 NICU nurse
"The Staff Bank Offices at Homerton Hospital NHS Trust enjoy a professional association with Capital Staffing Services as an agency provider of all nursing staff including Midwifery and Paediatric across all sectors as covered by The London Regional Framework Agency Agreement.
The quality of staff provided is invariably of the highest standard and we are always confident that all LRFAG requirements governing the provision of agency staff to the NHS are met. The professionalism, efficiency and friendliness of the office staff working within the agency is of the highest standard with effective communication being one of the major strengths of the organisation."
Michelle Allen, Staff Bank Lead - Homerton Hospital NHS Trust
"I have been with Capital for a while now and I am very happy with them. They are very professional and reliable. Whenever I want to work shifts they are always there for me - I find Capital to be the best agency and I would definitely recommend anyone to join."
"Lewisham University Hospital has had a long and successful relationship with the Capital Group as a preferred agency, across all specialisms.
As an agency, Capital are friendly, efficient, and interested, with brilliant communications and customer care ethics, which operate more akin to a partnership than a traditional client and supplier model. The agency liaises with us regularly to ensure that their service ensures they meet the frequently changing demands of a busy Central London Trust (even to the point of bonussing their staff to fill urgent requirements).
The quality of their staff is invariably good, and we at Lewisham have confidence in the professionalism of their recruitment procedures; and on the rare occasion an issue is raised, it is invariably treated in a very timely manner.
I look forward to a continuing partnership with the Capital Group."
Margaret Burrows, Central Bank Manager
"Being a peadiactric nurse for several years and wanting to try something different in my field led me to join the well known Capital Group Nursing Agency. My experience with them has been incredible, particularly in the paediatric homecare where I gained knowledge in home ventilation and tracheostomy. Additionally, I have been able to buy my own 3 bedroom property and achieve a high standard of lifestyle. Thanks to Capital!"
Joan Holman, Capital Paediatric Nurse
"I have been working for Capital since 2010. The office staff are honest, friendly, very helpful and patient with me 'specially'. Their pay is good! Always on time and if corrections need to be made they are always made on time.
The work placements are really good for me as well because I can work in the same trust for up to 3-6 months continuity which is very helpful and convenient for me. Capital is the best nursing agency!"
Sharon Rwamaga (RN1)
"I was able to request the jobs that I wanted and the team did everything possible to give the assignments I wanted. Capital also pay for my yearly updates to improve my nursing skills. I am paid weekly unlike some agencies paying you fortnightly. Someone is always available 24/7 to help you if you had any problems on your assignments.
Capital has great and friendly staff who are always willing to help. What can I say? Capital is London’s number one nursing agency and the pay rates match your worth in your skills. Capital is like a brilliant nursing union in the way it looks after you."
Lesley Augustus, Registered Paediatric Nurse with Capital Since 2003
