"pay is weekly which is great"

I joined Direct Nursing Services in 2018 and picked up occasionally shifts on top of my NHS contract, fast forward to today, I’ve now been working full time for DNS for 2 months and only regret not doing it sooner! The ability to book my own shifts gives me more freedom, by choosing where and when to work! I work more hours in a week than I ever did, but I simply put this down to the fact that I’m enjoying work again, going to different wards/units and having a variety in my shifts. Working full time for DNS has also helped with work related anxiety due to the stress of my previous job, I noticed a difference immediately and feel confident in my choice to purely work for an agency. I get to work as part of many different teams and feel appreciated by the staff there and by the team I’m the office. I don’t pass the office often so all of my communication is by phone, but the booking system is brilliant and so easy to use and pay is weekly which is great. If any issues arise the DNS team are just a phone call away, and they’re all a friendly bunch and have always been so helpful! Thank you DNS. Fern Osborne
