Narrow Quay HR – Your New HR Support

Whether it is managing your current employees, reassessing your workforce levels, or taking on more staff to deal with growth in your practice, Narrow Quay HR provides a flexible and practical range of HR solutions to assist your practice with day to day HR issues and challenges.

HR Support Package

For a fixed monthly fee, Narrow Quay HR can support your healthcare practice, from commencement to termination of employment and everything in between.

Our experienced HR consultants take on a commercial approach and work together with you to ensure that you comply with best HR practice and receive pragmatic advice, giving you peace of mind and support when you need it.

What sets us apart from other HR providers is that our HR consultants have backgrounds as qualified Employment lawyers and now specialise in HR, giving you the best of both worlds in terms of solid legal grounding and HR expertise.

We work together with you in understanding your practices’ needs and requirements. We won’t just tell you what you can and can’t do, we will work with you to find a solution that works best for your practice, and aim to become your trusted HR provider, especially in challenging times.

Key Features of Narrow Quay HR Support Scheme

Our Narrow Quay HR consultants work together with you to provide you with many benefits as follows:

– An in-depth HR audit carried out at the start of your contract to enable our HR consultants to get to know and understand your practice
– A fixed annual fee giving you certainty in relation to costs

How You Can Benefit From This Package?

We completely understand the pressures and challenges that healthcare practices are currently experiencing. Our Narrow Quay HR support package is the ideal solution for your HR issues and take the stress off you to focus on developing your practice. Our package is flexible, tailored to suit your specific HR needs, and particularly suited to practices that do not have a specific HR function, with HR matters being dealt with as part of general practice management
