About Us
Essential Nursing and Care was founded in 2002
and is now one of the leading suppliers of care staff on the South Coast. Having sourced the right job for many nurses and carers we are always looking to extend our professional team.
Based in Poole and Dorchester, we specialise in the supply of qualified nurses and highly experienced carers. Our staff are chosen for their experience, qualifications and friendly approach. Our Managers are specifically chosen for their strong background in social care. This has led to us being the agency of choice for several NHS Trusts as well as social services, private clients and Clinical Commissioning Groups.

Our commitment to ongoing training ensures that all our staff become the best that they can be and this means that they can provide the best service for you our service users. Our training courses and facilities are widely used within the industry.
