Newcross and Turning Point Scotland share a commitment to high quality care

The national healthcare employer Newcross Healthcare Solutions has today announced the signing of a new contract with care provider Turning Point Scotland to supply highly trained healthcare professionals on a temporary basis, which will support their work in the delivery of high quality care.

Turning Point Scotland provides person-centred care to a wide range of potentially vulnerable service users, restoring independence to individuals and enabling them to lead the lives they desire. The quality of the care and support they provide depends upon a personalised service, tailored to each individual's needs. This conscientious approach to care delivery aligns with the core values of Newcross, who are themselves proponents of providing only the highest quality, most appropriate care.

This shared commitment to person-centred care makes Newcross ideally suited to provide Turning Point Scotland with temporary nurses and healthcare staff who can ensure service users continue to receive the high quality of care they expect. As a result, existing and prospective Newcross employees will now see a greater number of opportunities, working in various Turning Point Scotland services throughout the country.

Newcross and Turning Point Scotland share a long-standing working relationship, with Newcross consistently delivering a high quality service as the chief supplier of nursing staff to Turning Point Scotland. This remit has now been extended to include all healthcare staff.

Corporate Service Manager of Turning Point Scotland, Jennifer Cairns said, "We are delighted to expand our existing contract with Newcross, which will see a great benefit to both companies. Our past experiences with Newcross have been wholly positive, and it is evident they share our belief in high quality, person-centred care. The continuity Newcross provide will ensure that our services users receive the support they require at all times".

Newcross had previously worked with a variety of Turning Point Scotland services, supporting essential rehabilitation and addiction centres in Glasgow and the surrounding areas, as well as contributing to Turning Point Scotland's supported living work. Rose Lee, Scottish Regional Operations Manager for Newcross was visibly delighted by the agreement, stating, "This is an exciting opportunity for Newcross to work with Turning Point Scotland, one of the key providers of social and community care in Scotland. We share several key values, and we are pleased to support the delivery of exceptional care in a vast number of communities".
