Compliance and consistency to quality standards
Our founding core values are centred around commitment to quality of care, compassion, respect and dignity. At the same time, working constantly to improve lives demands practical systems and methodologies, which always ensures compliance and consistency to robust quality standards.
Our personalised approach to support staff services is aimed at meeting the growing recruitment challenges faced by both current and fast evolving healthcare environments.
According to figures from independent charity, the Kings Fund in 2018, there is a shortage of more than 100,000 staff across all NHS Trusts. Rising vacancies in adult social care currently total 110,000. This means that 1 in 10 social workers and 1 in 11 care worker roles are unfilled. The Kings Fund predict that the “gap between staff needed and the number available” could reach almost 250,000 by 2030.
Red flag priorities can be found right across the care spectrum, from hospitals, nursing homes and care homes to a variety of domiciliary and home care settings, extra care, and continuing healthcare (non-nursing).
Our commitment is to always to provide the required support to ensure a safe level of trusted professional healthcare at all times. Cucumber values all staff and offers continuous support, training and professional development.
