  • Highly specialised nurses always available

  • Dedicated to excellence in patient care

Standby24 is a specialist UK healthcare staffing solution, experienced in the supply of the highest-quality temporary, contract and permanent candidates for NHS and private healthcare organisations. Our reputation was forged on our ability to supply elite staff on an emergency basis, when very few others could.


Through running our sister company, OneCall24, we saw that our clients’ biggest staffing headaches arose when specialist nurses and locums were needed urgently at the last minute. Gaps in shifts can arise at any time around the clock. Yet conscientious, vetted nurses, qualified to administer sutures or chemotherapy, do not tend to be queuing in your corridors at 10 o’clock at night in freshly pressed uniforms, certificates in hand.


We set up Standby24 to solve this problem. Think of us as your virtual queue. We provide the very finest emergency service: 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. StandBy24’s stringent vetting, compliance and governance procedures make us one of the most up-to-date and comprehensive staffing solutions in healthcare recruitment. We adhere to the very highest of standards, reflected in the quality and calibre of staff we supply.
