Medicat is now celebrating its 20th birthday and what a journey of growth, challenges and development. Its mentor and managing director, now a retired RN, has many years of experience in both the public and private health sectors and felt that she could establish a nursing agency that provided a far superior nursing agency service, not only to clients but also its nurses.
This conviction has richly developed the true value of Medicat, its staff and clients working as a complete, co-operative and productive team. Clients are able to enjoy and value the huge benefit of reliable continuity with staff provision, as do the Medicat nursing team members that support them. The personable Medicat office team provide a direct on call 24/7 service to both the clients and nurses, avoiding frustrating call centres and call options. With respect to staff retention, Medicat is very proud. How many nursing agencies can say that they have nursing staff that have remained with them for 20 years, who have supported and encouraged members of the nursing team to develop from HCA’s to experienced RN’s?
