The team at Essential worked tirelessly to ensure that we were awarded a place on the National Clinical Staffing Framework. After a rigorous tender exercise, we scored highly in all selection criteria and are now supplying quality staff to all NHS Trusts. If you are a Registered Nurse, or Health Care Assistant looking for a full time job or top up hours with a professional, ethical and supportive agency who offer a huge variety of roles, you need look no further!

As well as an enviable CQC report for our Poole branch, we have recently had our CQC inspection for our Dorchester branch. Whilst we cannot yet provide a link to this report as we are waiting for it to be published, we can highlight some of the report’s content below:
“Staff are kind and caring and had a good rapport with the people they supported.”
"Nothing is too much trouble. They ask how I felt and I felt listened to.”
We are extremely proud to have achieved a Good
rating for evidencing a Safe
, Responsive and Well-led service.
We are saying a fond farewell to a few team members over the next few weeks. Amy Hunter, Sally Anstee and Tracy Lethaby are moving onto pastures new and we wish them every success with their future endeavours. We have some new team members joining us, Susan White is working alongside our team of carers in the Dorchester branch as our Domiciliary Care Coordinator. This is an internal promotion for Susan and we are all very much looking forward to working with her. Kelly Greenly-Jones is joining us as our Deputy Domiciliary Manager, working alongside Sophie Smith. Kelly has a wealth of experience in the domiciliary sector and is looking forward to working and supporting her team to grow the domiciliary department. We also have Laura Kemp joining our Accounts Department. Laura will be our new Accounts Supervisor and working with Beryl, Ursula and Callum. Their photos will be uploaded to our ‘Meet the Team
’ page shortly, so you can put faces to the names!
