The Emergency Personnel Story – A History of Placing People First

Emergency Personnel was incorporated as a limited company in March 2013. The sole aim was to be one of the largest, and best, suppliers of quality healthcare professionals in the United Kingdom by providing outstanding service throughout the sector.

That goal is as true today as it was then. Since its incorporation, Emergency Personnel has grown, by Placing People First, from a small business into one of the UK’s leading, and most respected, healthcare staffing agencies. We are proud of our journey from humble beginnings to being able to deliver on our original aims again and again. Today, we provide strong, partnership-based staffing solutions to healthcare organisations throughout the UK, striving always to be the very best at what we do.

On our journey, in 2016, we determined to influence peoples’ lives even more and, as a result, entered the world of complex care in the community, in addition to our broader services. The result was Verve Homecare, a leader in the sector with a reputation we’re supremely proud of.

The dedication and hard work of everyone who works for us and with us has led to great client relationships and a reputation for delivering bespoke care packages, tailored to each of our clients’ requirements and needs, through Verve Homecare, and wider healthcare staffing – individuals and teams – through Emergency Personnel.

The highly experienced, thoroughly-vetted, caring and reliable staff we place are the foundation of our reputation.

Our head office is located in Canary Wharf, enabling us to run a highly efficient and effective service, whilst we also have offices in Bristol, Littlehampton and in Karachi in Pakistan.

When it comes to placing people, our vision is to continue to lead the way in Placing People First.
