Following the already successful Plymouth, Torquay and Exeter locations, Barnstaple will be the 8th branch in the South West and 44th in the UK. Newcross has grown rapidly over 19 years, building a reputation for providing a standard of excellence for personalised care which is reflected in the Western Morning News’ Top 150 companies list, where Newcross was placed second. 

An additional bonus for nurses in the surrounding Barnstaple area is the Newcross golden ticket promotion, which offers a £500 reward for new and re-joining nurses to the Newcross team. Working as a Newcross nurse provides flexibility and opportunity, with a true work-life balance on offer; flexible shifts in acute healthcare, community, or care at home are proposed. 

Geoff White, Newcross Operations Director said: “Providing over 100 permanent jobs is a real boost for both Newcross and Barnstaple. We are delighted to be able to provide the Newcross standard of care to the local area and look forward to working with our new clients as well as welcoming new employees to join us.”

Alix Ripley, Barnstaple Branch Manager concluded: “What an exciting time for Barnstaple! Expanding into North Devon, our highly anticipated Barnstaple branch is dedicated to not only meeting, but exceeding client’s expectations. By employing the best healthcare professionals we will provide an excellent level of care to the local area.”
