Wider healthcare teams

Frontline NHS staff, such as nurses, doctors and paramedics, have a high profile in the health service. However, their ability to do their vital work depends upon a massive back-up operation, provided around the clock by a huge range of support staff. This can be in a wide range of settings, such as hospitals, GP surgeries and nursing homes.

Wider healthcare teams maintain the buildings, provide the catering, run the clinical supply service, handle the administration and much more.
