About me and Nurses.co.uk

We're a small business, based in South Devon (the address that you see on our Facebook page and in the footer of this site is near Brighton and is our registered company address).

The site was started by myself and a close business partner, Tim, in 2008.

Nurses.co.uk began simply as a website to list jobs for nurses and care home managers.

In 2010 I started writing articles after visiting some university career fairs and events and chatting with people who dedicate their lives and careers to caring for others.

Some nurses read these and asked if we would publish their articles.

We thought that would be a great idea.

In 2016 we started working with a nurse who became a regular contributor.

And in 2017 we started to add videos by nurses and students.

In 2018 Liam joined as a regular contributor and in 2019 launched his podcast series about care home management.

We now have almost 1000 articles, blogs, videos and audio / podcasts.

No, we're not like a social media platform: it's not a free-for-all.

We take time evaluating if a piece is relevant to our audience, and then we run the usual publishing processes of checking, proof reading, editing and preparing for live publication.

We speak with our contributors by email. It's 'curated' to use an on-trend word.

What's also different about us is that we are a small team and we're independent of national publishers and global tech brands.

We simply want our site to be a useful, curated library of work - we are an independent publishing platform run by real humans who care.

We look forward to hearing from you.

I studied English before moving into publishing in the mid 90s. I co-founded Nurses.co.uk in 2008. I’m interested in providing a platform that gives a voice to nurses and those working in care and nursing. I'm fascinated by the career choices we make. In the case of those working in care I've discovered that there's a positive, life-affirming common theme.
