The Care Hub
Scott Sherriden

Scott created the Care Hub in 2016 to help address the growing skills and labour gap that currently threatens the UK Care sector.  

After a chance meeting with the MD of Westward Care (Peter Hodkinson), Scott was invited to spend some time with the Registered Managers to see what it’s like to try and recruit staff for a busy care home in a highly competitive area.
After his time with Westward Care, Scott met other providers and found the challenges were virtually the same everywhere. High staff turnover, struggling to find the right staff with the right values, candidate no-shows, too many agency staff covering shifts, no in-house recruitment expertise, no recruitment systems or best practice approach and a lack of real-time data are just some of the key challenges that care providers face in today’s war for talent.

The Care Hub’s ‘Outsourced Recruitment Services’ has matured into one of the most innovative and effective ways to address your recruitment and retention headaches. The Care Hub’s in-house recruitment team act as an extension of your business and manage everything for you. 

We write your adverts, manage your candidate applications, conduct values bases assessment, screen, shortlist and book your interviews, manage your offers and process all your DBS checks and reference checks. 

Our approach takes away the headache and stress of recruitment and frees up you and your team to focus on all your other key tasks so that you can continue to deliver outstanding care.

Pulse Healthcare Cyber Security Ltd

Richard Jackson

“Information & Cyber Security in Health & Social Care” 

“Your healthcare organisation is at risk”.

Three key facts:

  1. Health
    & Social Care experiences more data breaches than any other business sector
  2. The average cost of a Healthcare data breach is 73% higher than in any other industry
  3. Electronic health data is 10 to 40 times more valuable to a cyber criminal, than your credit card details

Data security is THE biggest challenge facing the healthcare sector today. 

In addition to maintaining GDPR
compliance, healthcare organisations are also being asked to complete the
online NHS Data Security & Protection Toolkit, manage local authority ICT
Assurance Audits…and somehow run a care organisation at the same time!


Richard will give a broad and
in-depth overview of the information security landscape for health & social
care, along with providing expert advice on the basic steps your organisation
can take to increase its data security and to reassure your patients/service
users that their personal data is safe with you.”
