NHS Professionals (NHSP) is a limited company wholly owned by the Department of Health; and is the leading provider of managed flexible worker services to the NHS.

Established as a Special Health Authority (SpHA) on 1 April 2004, NHS Professionals was created to be a national branded managed service for temporary staff in the NHS. In 2010 NHS Professionals was dissolved as a Special Health Authority and became NHS Professionals Ltd, a company wholly owned by the Secretary of State for Health in April 2010. NHSP does not receive central funding.

Our Future

In September 2017, the Minister of Health and Social Care confirmed NHS Professionals would remain in public ownership.

NHS Professionals is transforming the way we deliver our services to ensure these are fit for the future and competitive in a marketplace that is constantly evolving.

Our mission is to become the leading partner to healthcare professionals working flexibly and world class provider of managed services related to flexible working in the NHS.
