Improving the quality and consistency of care for cancer patients

We place qualified, experienced cancer nurses where they’re most needed

About us

As the only UK recruitment agency solely dedicated to the provision of cancer staff, our goal at Cura is to improve the quality and consistency of care for patients. With our database of vetted nurses, we connect people who need care with those best qualified to provide it.

Operating across Oncology, Chemotherapy, and Radiology, we are able to provide experienced and qualified cancer staff from bands 5 to 8.

The Truth

There are more than 2.5 million people currently living with cancer in the UK
The number will increase to 4 million by 2030, with a further 363,000 people predicted to develop cancer year-on-year
Over 100,000 patients who miss early diagnosis due to staffing shortages every year
Every two minutes in the UK, someone is diagnosed with cancer
Half of people born after 1960 are likely to develop cancer at some stage of their lives
Over 200,000 nurses have resigned since 2010, and one in three are due to retire within the next 10 years
