Happy birthday to us! This month marks 20 years of nursing and top-class care from Richmond Nursing, and we’ve been holding a series of community and charity events to celebrate the occasion.
Richmond was formed in Llanelli by two nurses in September 1997 and we quickly established ourselves as the go-to agency within the critical care area of nursing. Two decades on, we’re one of Wales’ leading nursing agencies, providing expertise in a diverse range of fields as an approved supplier under the All Wales Agency Framework, including multiple ward areas, theatres and mental health.
We’re proud to say we now have nurses working in every local health board in Wales, while our recently opened office in Ellesmere Port – complementing centres in Cardiff, Bristol and our Llanelli HQ – means we have every corner covered! This exciting expansion enables us to react even more efficiently to staff and client demand and extend our reach to hospitals across the north west of England as well as in Wales.
We’ve been celebrating this success throughout our anniversary year with coffee mornings, pub quizzes, sponsored events, a golf day and we entered a team into the Swansea 10K. All events have raised money for our two chosen charities, Tenovus Cancer Care and the Old Mill Foundation holistic cancer care centre, as well as bringing our agency nurses together for a welcome break from the demands of caring!
Operations Director Nigel James says:
Richmond Nursing is proud to have been associated with supplying high quality, professional staff to the health boards in Wales for the past 20 years. We owe a lot to our loyal band of nurses and our ever-growing team of new nurses. Here’s to the next 20 years!
One of the Founding Directors Adrian Hearne adds:
Since the beginning, we’ve ensured that Richmond is synonymous with quality, both for our clients and for the nurses who work for us. Over the last 20 years, our ability to embrace the challenges that we’ve encountered has only been possible due to the high calibre and flexibility of our staff. Our empathetic approach to our workers has been key in nurturing this support in a profession that continually demands the understanding of its staff needs.
As we enter an exciting new phase of growth going into our 21st year, Richmond Nursing needs you! We’re recruiting nurses from all backgrounds and disciplines to our team, so if you want to work with a professional and reliable nursing agency offering shifts up to eight weeks in advance, get in touch or register today!
