LaingBuisson was recently featured in The Guardian after figures revealed between 2022 and 2023, the NHS had spent a staggering £10bn on non-permanent staffing in the UK.

The Guardian reports that widespread short staffing has increased urgency from hospitals and GPs, to spend millions alone on employment agencies, just to fill the gaps within the stretched workforce.

The data from LaingBuisson’s Temporary Recruitment and Staffing: Healthcare UK Market Landscape Report outlines that the overall market value for the healthcare temporary recruitment and staffing market, is estimated at £5.1 billion in the UK.
