Ryecroft Glenton extends its support of Primary Care Recruitment after NHS Framework deal

Leading North East Business and Tax Advisory firm Ryecroft Glenton (RG) is to extend its support of Primary Care Recruitment, which has secured a place to supply staff on the two separate NHS Framework agreements.

Founded 28 years ago by Registered General Nurse Joanne Wood and her husband Brad, Gosforth-based Primary Care Recruitment is one of the North East and Cumbria’s largest nursing and care staffing companies, and the only business in the region to supply staff through the new frameworks.

Earlier this year, with the support of RG Corporate Finance, the firm secured a six-figure funding package to expand operations, which led to it securing places on both the Workforce Alliance Framework and the Health Trust Europe Framework.

Following on from that successful project, Ryecroft Glenton has been appointed to provide a range of ongoing business advisory services, including accountancy and business tax advice, to enable the directors to focus on the growth of the business.


Specialising in Mental Health care, Primary Care Recruitment already works with the NHS and private sector clients such as Mental Health NHS Trusts and Care Homes throughout the North East. The new framework agreements mean that they are registered to supply nurses and other qualified and unqualified staff to the NHS nationally.

Support with the applications was provided by Ryecroft Glenton, led by Senior Audit Manager Tony Gillham, and the firm will continue to provide advice throughout the four-year term of the agreements.

Joanne Wood said: “With the continued support of Ryecroft Glenton we have been able to achieve what no other North East business has, securing places on two NHS Framework agreements. We already work with local NHS Trusts, but this means that we can now supply to the wider region, including Teesside and the North West as well as nationally.

“The team at Ryecroft Glenton has been instrumental in supporting the business which has allowed us to increase our operations to support the current Coronavirus situation, particularly in the North East.

Tony Gillham, Senior Audit Manager at RG, said: “Primary Care Recruitment already has an excellent track record with the NHS, along with a high-class reputation. Throughout the pandemic they have played a crucial role in supporting the regions mental healthcare and this will only increase with the news on the two new Framework agreements.

We are proud to have worked with Joanne and her team to support the application process, these new agreements will allow for further growth of Primary Care Recruitment and means that they can now supply to the NHS nationwide. We are looking forward to seeing continued positive growth in the business.”
