Plymouth Science Park has this month welcomed Nurses Direct to its cohort of thriving healthcare businesses already based at the Park. 

Nurses Direct is a South-West company with a network of high-profile clients across the South of the UK. 

Established at the start of 2021 to address the demand for trained staff in care homes, the business provides nurses with access to permanent and temporary job roles, ongoing training and professional development opportunities. Nurses Direct is committed to ensuring care homes across the south of the UK have access to highly skilled members of staff to support the most vulnerable members of the population.

Hector Sanchez Lozano, Director at Nurses Direct said: “During the pandemic it was clear that care homes were struggling to recruit the skilled staff they needed to provide high quality care to their residents. We founded Nurses Direct to ensure all care homes had access to the staff that they needed.”

“Plymouth Science Park is the perfect location for our business to establish itself, as we join an environment of supportive and experienced science, medical and technology businesses which we look forward to working alongside. We have ambitious plans to continue our business expansion across the South and into the rest of the UK.”

Two of the three Nurses Direct directors are qualified nurses with experience of working in care homes, giving them insight into the inner workings of the sector and the needs of care homes and their residents. 

Fay Davies, Business Development Manager at Plymouth Science Park, commented: “Nurses Direct is a group of enterprising healthcare professionals who identified a recruitment problem for care homes during the pandemic and have created a solution. Their services will help to support care homes through the post-pandemic fallout and beyond. We look forward to supporting their growth at this exciting time in their business development.”
