Staffing is often used by health care providers to cover up staff shortages or to gain access to specialist expertise. There are many occasions when healthcare providers choose to use Dedicare’s staffing services and include, for example:
- To avoid costly recruitment processes but at the same time be able to handle rapid changes in the need for primary care or specialist care
- To manage and cover up for sick leave, vacation or temporary peaks
- To bridge any gaps between jobs
- In case of difficulties in recruiting staff to smaller locations
Staffing is an effective way of managing an underlying difficult resource situation in a simple and flexible way. Doctors, nurses and social workers can relieve high workloads and provide skills that are not normally found in the workplace, especially in sparsely populated areas.
The benefits of staffing for our consultants include the opportunity to control where, when and how much you want to work. The possibility of changing workplaces and / or work tasks also increases by being included in a staffing database. Within staffing, Dedicare staffes doctors, nurses, social workers, medical secretaries and other staff in health care and social work.
The staffing services offered by Dedicare means that a nurse, a social worker or a doctor works temporarily with Dedicare’s clients. Our consultants work in some cases only temporarily, but they can also take on assignments alongside a permanent position with another employer. The assignments may include single days or longer periods and may apply to individual doctors as well as staffing of entire departments, units or operating teams.
