Why Amber Healthcare?

Why Amber?2020-08-24T12:15:02+00:00

We are passionate about
North East healthcare

Amber is an Agency based in the North East of England, providing North East staff to local clinical services.

We largely specialise in providing Advanced Nurse and Paramedic Practitioners. Amber was born from an idea between 2 work friends to a reality in 2015 after we realised that the North East had an abundance of their own staff that could be utilised for the North East instead of using southern-based agencies.

Our business philosophy is to provide a personal service to both staff and clients and ensure that the service is of a high standard. Amber works with GP Practices, Home visiting services, urgent care services and local ambulance services from the Ponteland area down to North Yorkshire.

Testimonials

My daughter Charlotte was seen by a member of the Amber Team recently. The consultation and treatment she received from the nurse was outstanding. Attending a clinic for a poorly 2 year old can be confusing and a scary experience however the nurse treated my daughter with utmost care and attention and made the experience a pleasant one for her and for us as parents. Diagnosis was swift and treatment was explained in a straightforward manner. The practitioner had a professional yet caring attitude; she was confident and more than happy to answer any questions we had to alleviate our concerns. The care and treatment was very patient focused and didn’t feel as though there were any time constraints during the consultation. The services provided by Amber North East are alleviating ongoing pressure on the NHS, including waiting times to be seen. For those reasons I was very pleased with the service offered by Amber North East and since then  I always ask for my family to be seen by an Amber Nurse – I cant thank them enough they are a credit to the region.

Vanessa, Member of the community

We are a busy Darlington based GP practice and have been using the nursing team provided by Amber for some time now. They provide a quality service with a high calibre of staff who are reliable, professional and are a pleasure to have working with us.

The team are an absolute pleasure to deal with and will respond instantly to any queries or requests we may have.

We have no doubt whatsoever that our Patients are in very safe and caring hands. The Team are well respected by our GP Partners both for their skills and their patient manner.

Although the service provided by Amber is most professional they manage to combine it with a very personal approach which ensures that dealing with them is always pleasant and reassuring.

I would not hesitate to recommend Amber to any of my colleagues.

Lesley, GP Surgery
