Brandon and the team have been a massive help over the last few months. They have worked really hard covering shifts, even last minute when we had a lot of staff off due to a covid outbreak. They have made things easier and supported us through difficult times. Communication is great and always asking feedback on staff and addressing any concerns immediately. Highly recommend Hands on Health care.
I have just had a phone call from our unit manager singing the praises of Saeed, the Care Assistant who has come for a shift with us today, so much so we are short on that particular unit on Thursday & Friday of this week and we are wondering if we could book him direct for those shifts 7am – 7pm?

Well Well Well. Where do I start. We have been using Hands on Healthcare for a few months now.
The relationship that we have built with the team is fantastic. Klara and I have spoken to Brandon many a times on a weekend or at silly o’clock. I am sure he does not mind as he is always pleasant to work with.
As like any business we have had to try different things to ensure everything runs smoothly. Well as smoothly as can be. It is life 😊 We have a very open and honest relationship which works great. If something needs sorting from my end or Brandon’s end it will get done.
We have catch up zooms to ensure everyone is happy. They are all very supportive and understand the needs of a care home. Which is always a plus point. Massive thank you from me and Klara for the continued support.
Well as you will already be aware Susan stood out to us by miles and we presented her with a gift when she left.
During our time of need throughout an outbreak you as an agency really stepped up for us and were able to cover all of our required shifts which was a lot at the time.
David Blondin, St Annes Community Services, Halifax
As always you are my number one agency to go too and 99% of the time send good quality staff, and should I have any problems you always deal with anything. Out of all the staff you send, who are very good and fit in well, Rukaya stands out, she is very punctual, very polite, very very person centred, she puts all my clients at the centre of all she does, she follows and does everything that is needed of her, and goes above and beyond with what she does.
Gaynor, Director at GT care
Alternative care has had excellent working relationships with Frank and his team. The organisation is professional and caring and aim to meet every request made, this enables alternative care to maintain a safe environment when dealing with acute admissions. The staff that work with us as part of our team are well trained. Frank aims to create consistent individuals so our service users and staff build positive relationships and we end up with a win-win situation for our service to function the best we can.
Kirsty Fennell, Home Manager, Oak Tree Lodge, Leeds
I have worked with Erin Hinchcliffe from Hands on Healthcare for the past few months to recruit for vacancies. I have found the service that Erin offers to be very efficient. The communication is great and the candidates that have been put forward are of a very high standard.
I have enjoyed the short time working with Erin and hope that this continues as we value the service that Hands on Healthcare offer.
Lynette Leahy, Home Manager, Westfield House Care Home, Harrogate
We aren’t in a position to be needing agency staff at the moment but should we be again in the future Hands On would be my first choice for care staff.
Very professional, helpful and accommodating and excellent customer service.
Lettie Roche, Service Manager, United Response, Huddersfield
The Huddersfield management team have been very impressed with Hands On during what has been a challenging time! You have managed to be a source of reliability second to none, notwithstanding covid issue but at any moment. Professional at all levels! I have to say that Brandon is particularly great – his work ethic is strong and his ability to manage change is very encouraging for us and the nature of our business. I have to acknowledge Kemi, Ope, and Buky - all great support workers! If I had to choose, then Brandon is the star of the show.
Tracy Bray, Lead Senior Support Worker, United Response, Huddersfield
I would just like to say what a great company Hands-on healthcare is, all the staff that we have used are highly trained good workers, we haven’t had many issues with the company or staff. The management are very friendly and are always willing to help out all they can, they will go at any lengths to help us out even at short notice. I personally wouldn't use any other company, they have all become great friends and I would highly recommend.
Michaela, Alternative Care Limited

Thank you stay safe.

Brandon and the team at Hands-on Healthcare recruitment are always friendly and reliable; Brandon strives to ensure consistency with the support that he provides to our service. Often going out of his way to ensure that we have support staff, on sometimes last-minute requests. He stays in touch with us, ensuring that we are happy with the support provided, and that they are meeting the requirements of our home.
Brandon's efforts to support us have been massively appreciated, especially through these unprecedented times. He has maintained his applaudable work effort without faulter through the pandemic. Many thanks for all the support over the last year, keep up the good work.
I want to take a moment to thank all the members of Hands-On Healthcare for their (help, support, encouragement, etc.) throughout this difficult time. It’s comforting to know that I have such caring people surrounding me. Thank you particularly for all your kindness, support and encouragement ever since I joined the company - you're the best and I want you to know that I do appreciate and respect you a lot.
Working with Hands-On Healthcare and Tina has been a lovely journey of humility and mutual respect to humanity, Tina is always available to help and support you at anytime.
For me it is always fun to ring the office at anytime knowing the staff got me covered.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you, Beth, Gillian and the rest of you all that have had to put up with my sometimes stinky attitude, my topsy turvy lifestyle and just the chaos that is me! You have all been very patient (probably more than I deserved) you have been accommodating and extremely supportive and for all them things I am ever so grateful to each of you. I wish you all, all the very best going forward and I will recommend Hands on to anyone! Lovely bunch you are. Thank you :)
Hands-On Healthcare is an outstanding company in the health care sector. The workers are well taken care of, salaries are paid when due without delay. Mr STEVEN BIRIK who is in charge of planning the rota for shift is a fine gentleman who knew his job so well, he listens and sorts out any issues the second they arises. He is a good listener and very accommodating. I'm saying all this because I have worked in so many Agencies before joining the Hands-On Healthcare. There is a saying that “Experience is the best teacher."
Hands-On Healthcare is a lovely company full of experienced staff like Steven, ringing Steven is always a time full of fun and laugher, he is always there to support and get things sorted out just to make sure you are comfortable with your shift. Thanks Hands-On Healthcare for not only looking after your clients but your staff as well.
Working with Macey as my consultant has been rewarding as Macey actively listens to my needs and endeavours to place me where I am best suited, as a University student and father, it is inevitably challenging to meet my schedules demands but Macey always gets it right.
Macey has been brilliant, extremely helpful, professional and kept me busy at all times. I work as much as I want to work. I want to say thanks for all your unwavering support throughout the whole process.
