A message from our Managing Director, Darren Logue
“What makes my team at Bluestones Medical unique, within such a crowded marketplace, is the compassion, expertise, and selflessness that is applied daily in all they do.
Our candidates are nothing short of inspirational – and we can never thank them enough for the unique imprint they leave on the lives they change, save and touch daily.
Working within nursing and healthcare recruitment is more of a vocation than a job – and one my team and I at Bluestones Medical are extremely proud to do.”
We could talk all day about why we think we’re so great, but we’re biased. Therefore, we will let some of our candidates do that for us. Scroll through the testimonials below to see what some of our candidates from our different specialisms had to say about us.
I’ve been with Bluestones for a while now. They’re always positive and flexible with the shift that I want. Staff are very approachable and friendly.
I’ve worked at Bluestones Medical as a mental health nurse for a while now and I have to say it’s been a really enjoyable experience. I have never been without work and the staff are so approachable, there is really a sense of consideration and thought for their staff. The flexibility and autonomy I have over my working hours and shift pattern is second to none. It’s been a pleasure working with you guys at Bluestones!
After being block-booked in a nursing home for three and a half years, I decided I wanted to go back into hospital work. I was very nervous, as I had been off the ward for a while and know how quickly things move forward and change clinically! I want to thank Lee and all the team at Bluestones medical for the smooth transition and all your support. The ongoing excellent training I have received from Bluestones medical has helped me to keep my skills up-to-date, keeping me competent and I am thoroughly enjoying my new shifts. Again thank you all, I feel so proud and honored to work for an amazing agency.
I’ve been a Theatre Recovery Nurse with Bluestones now for several years and have never felt the need to change agency.
They are friendly and professional and I’ve always felt they will listen to any concerns I might have. A great team!
It’s only been a few weeks but so far my experience working for Bluestone’s has been really positive. The staff are really helpful and friendly, and always at the end of the phone (especially Natasha). I was worried about leaving my old job but so far it’s been the best decision I have made. The shifts work around my family and I can choose when and where I want to work. Definitely the right decision for me x
Very supportive and friendly staff.
I have worked for Bluestones Medical for many years now as a theatre scrub nurse. I have always been very well looked after in my placements with good rates of pay. They provide organised mandatory training and offer freedom and flexibility of working. They are a very professional, friendly, and supportive agency who have always listened if I have had any concerns and have helped were necessary. So, thank you to all at Bluestones, it is a pleasure to work with and for you.
Working for Bluestones Medical has changed my life. It has given me far more confidence as a nurse. I work on many different wards, in different hospitals with different people. I wish I had joined sooner! I was quite nervous doing my first agency shift, but the staff at BSM helped me along and I realised after my first shift, I had no reason to feel nervous. The pay is great and it was really easy and quick to join. The team made it so easy. My main reason for enjoying working for BSM is the guys in the office. They almost feel like part of my family as I speak to them so often. They are so always so willing to help with a query and always have time for you. I implore anybody and everybody to join this agency, as they have really changed my life – for the better!
I have worked for 3.5 years with Bluestones Medical. I have found them to be supportive and very helpful. Communication has been excellent and they have been flexible when needed. I have found all staff there to be pleasant, professional, accommodating and understanding. Thank you for making my experience working here enjoyable.
Bluestones Medical has changed my life! They offer a competitive pay rate which has certainly improved my quality of life and all the staff are friendly and approachable, particularly if you have a problem. They really do work hard for me and try to always fulfil my shift requests.
I have worked for Bluestones Medical for 5 months. I have had great support off everyone that works there, they are all very friendly and I find that I can talk to them about anything. They are very professional as well as very approachable and always have a friendly ear if needed. However, they always ensure that they uphold a professional status also. I recommend the company to many people I come across and thank them for everything that they do. Fantastic company to work for.
Each shift I work (over various locations) there appears to be more ‘Bluestones’ staff. It is a pleasure to work with these lovely colleagues and to work for a caring, professional committed nursing agency .
I have worked for quite a few agencies over the years, but since I started working for Bluestones Medical things have really changed for the better. They are very professional and always make sure that I am well looked after and feel confident in my work. They also ensure I have all the necessary training and qualifications to complete my role to a high standard. On a personal note, they are very welcoming and will always call you to receive feedback on your work how you are finding the shifts – which always feels great. I would always recommend them and believe they are on of the best in the industry.
