Menlo Park is the unequivocal market-leading recruitment consultancy within the primary care sector.
The company only works within primary care and, as a result, its experienced consultants are specialists in their niche with a deep knowledge of the market. In addition, the team has a strong understanding of their clients and candidates requirements in a sector currently going through real difficulty with chronic staff shortages.
Since being founded in 2015, Menlo Park has worked with in excess of 2,000 doctor’s surgeries across the UK, recruiting GPs, nurses, paramedics, pharmacists and physician associates.
Menlo Park has the largest candidate network in the sector and due to its unique proactive candidate generation methods, it is able to source candidates for long-standing vacancies that are otherwise impossible to fill by the practices themselves, thus saving the NHS money.
After winning recruiter of the year at the HealthInvestor Awards 2023, Menlo Park director James Truswell said: “It’s an honour to win such a prestigious award. The HealthInvestor Awards are one of the biggest industry awards in healthcare and to win you have to fight off a lot of really strong competitors in healthcare recruitment.”
Menlo Park has an unrivalled reputation in the market, with hundreds of testimonials from happy practices and clinicians that have used its services, and Menlo Park is the only recruitment consultancy in the sector to be an approved supplier with two industry accreditations from the Practice Manager’s Association and Practice Index.
Sharon Gavin-Jones, practice manager and client of Menlo Park, said: “They’ve been incredibly successful in procuring GPs for us that we’ve been unable to recruit directly. We’ve had two GPs placed with us, and an advanced nurse practitioner. The experience has been incredibly good. They’re just incredibly friendly and really helpful.
“We would never have been able to secure GPs without their help, so I think they have indirectly saved this practice.”
