The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust
I have been using Meridian since November 2009 and have found them very professional in how they operate. Their staff are very knowledgeable and have been consistent in providing people with the correct skills and requirements for the posts.
The quality of their service is excellent including all the legal requirements that are required for staff working in the NHS.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Meridian to any NHS Trust or company who wants a high level of service and after care.
Linen Services Department
Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
I have been working with Meridian Business Support for approximately 10 months, and have built a close working relationship with the team.
Meridian Business Support has supplied Warrington and Halton Hospitals with a number of experienced stores personnel, responding to our requests for staff promptly and efficiently. All staff supplied have been of the highest calibre which assists us as our business depends on our providers meeting our requests to the highest standards.
We have built up a good working relationship due to regular service reviews, confronting any issues early, and Meridian Business Support understanding the types of staff we require.
I would not hesitate to recommend Meridian Business Support as a use of temporary staff cover.
Mersey Care NHS Trust
We have been using Meridian for our agency staff requirements for some time now. We regularly use for domestic staff to cover sickness/annual leave. I personally find them very helpful, very willing, and friendly to deal with.
I have a specific lady to deal with, so I don’t feel I am passed around, and I feel I have built up a superb relationship with her.
They get to know your requirements and needs, and it is very easy to request staff, either by phone or e-mail. They meet our needs efficiently and quickly and we have regular service reviews, I am very happy with the service that I continue to receive. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Meridian for the service they provide.
Your support is very beneficial,

Is This The End of the Covering Letter?
The age of the cover letter may seemingly be over, according to new research from ‘Jobvite's 2017 Job Seeker Nation Study’. CNBC reports that the survey, which interviewed 2,200 candidates, found that fewer than ever are actively submitting a cover letter with their CV. What’s more surprising, is that recruiters and employers don’t seem to mind. 47% of those asked said that they didn’t attach a cover letter alongside their most recent applicat...
