Client testimonials
I used Graham Matthews to supply the Trust with MDT Coordinators, who are difficult to source as the role requires specialist knowledge around the NHS cancer standards. This skill set is difficult to find, particularly at very short notice. Graham Matthews were the only agency to be able to provide us with what was required.

I wouldn't hesitate to work with Graham Matthews in the future.

The quality of staff provided by Graham Matthews was excellent, as was the service delivered. It was great to have an agency I could rely on; I was able to call them and within 24 hours' notice I would have the professionals on site that were needed.

It was refreshing to work with an agency that knows the NHS market and are well-connected. I will definitely look to partner with them again in the future.

Head of Elective Assurance, Guys & St. Thomas NHS Foundation Trust

NHS Foundation Trust

I am currently using temporary agency Cancer MDT Coordinators/Trackers supplied by Graham Matthews and have found them to be extremely professional in their ability. They were able to integrate with the MDT Team very quickly and effectively causing no interruption or disruption to our services.

Unlike previous experiences with other agencies, I have found that Graham Matthews supply experienced, reliable personnel who fit the requirements of the post.
