• Cancelled no shifts for that month.
• Filled the highest number of shifts in the month for which they are being considered for.

“I am currently working for NHS Professionals as a midwife and work in all areas of midwifery. I provide holistic care to low and high-risk women from antenatal through to labour and delivery.
“I work for NHS Professionals because I always get the support I need when I contact the relevant departments with queries. The benefits of working for NHS Professionals include: first preference of shifts; good pay rates; excellent mandatory training and support; and being able to choose to work at one or two hospitals, which is good for clients and permanent members of staff.
“I am surprised and humbled that my colleagues thought I deserved this award. I wish I knew who they were, so I could thank each one personally. A huge thank you to all.”
Congratulations to all our July winners and thank you to all of our workers for ensuring that patients receive the best care possible, and for being great ambassadors for NHS Professionals.
