"Angela is a pleasure to work with and professional in the approach she uses to source the best candidates for Morrisons Pharmacy. She has presented me with some good candidates for some of our more 'difficult to fill' positions and has added value by looking outside the box and making recommendations specific to the vacancy in question when referring candidates to me, and shown knowledge of the market in so doing. I would have no hesitation in recommending her."

"I have used PPRUK for the past two to three months and they have been very successful at locating locum optometrists at a very short notice.
My direct contact has been a Ms Anu Jalaf who has conducted herself in a very professional and pleasant manner, I especially like the fact that she has been very in tune with our specific requirements for our practise and has managed to find like minded professional optometrist who we would use again.
I would definitely recommend PPRUK and especially Anu to any organisation looking for a locum as she is passionate about her job and does it with great pride."

A huge thank you to Lea Anne Barnes, for all her hard work and support during the recruitment process. She has been brilliant, keeping me updated, informing me constantly of any news and being very understanding. I was looking for a part-time position and she took on board all of the information that I gave her, was very honest and helpful.
The experience that I have had with PPRUK through Lea Anne has been excellent, and I would recommend PPRUK to any colleagues looking for a job in the health Sector. Lea Anne took all of the stress out of looking for a job and was constantly available, I would definitely use PPRUK in the future, and would also recommend Lea Anne, for her dedication and professionalism.

SPECSAVERS ANNOUNCES "MAJOR" OPHTHALMOLOGY PARTNERSHIP
Specsavers has today (28 November) announced a “major investment” in a partnership with one of the UK’s largest independent ophthalmology providers to the NHS, Newmedica.
The partnership, Specsavers confirmed, is designed to improve eye health services for patients in the community. Following the announcement, co-founder and CEO of Specsavers, Doug Perkins, said: “Newmedica and Specsavers share a passion for transforming eye health and for focusing on what is best for patients and we are very much looking forward to working together.”
He explained: “The investment has only just been made and it is too early to say exactly how the partnership will develop in the future. However, with hospital eye departments under pressure due to an ageing population and an increase in treatable eye conditions, we will be exploring with Newmedica ways in which we can provide NHS ophthalmology services in the community.”
“We envisage that the services would be led by ophthalmologists, and supported by optometrists in our stores,” he added.
Founded nine years ago, Newmedica operates from 25 community and GP sites, as well as NHS and private hospitals and mobile clinics, across England. The services that it delivers covers a wide range of ophthalmology, including outpatients and surgery, adult, paediatric and neonatal ophthalmology.
Speaking about the partnership, co-founder and director of Newmedica, Darshak Shah, said: “This represents a significant milestone and a hugely positive development for Newmedica, enabling us to develop the business for a long-term future in support of our mission of making eye care better.”
