Don’t just take our word for it.

Here’s what our clients say about us.

We were impressed with how quickly Scottish Nursing Guild responded to implement a bespoke package of care for a young person. The Guild stepped in during a crisis which allowed social work the necessary time to appropriately plan a suitable and stable long-term package of care for the child.

Commissioning team, Social Work Services at Scottish local authority

My son has been using the Scottish Nursing Guild for his care while on respite breaks for the past 18 years.

We are delighted with the care my son receives. My son has severe behavioural problems, which Guild nurses cope with exceptionally well and always with good humour. He is always happy with the nurses, well cared for whilst away with them and comes home happy and well looked after. It is a much-needed relaxing break for me as I know the nurses are taking such good care of him. I couldn’t praise Guild nurses enough. They are simply the best.

I work for a local authority and support people with learning disabilities to live independently in the community. I have required the services of the Guild for several years and have always found the staff to be professional, courteous and willing to learn. The booking system is straightforward, and we are always informed of shift cover in advance. The staff supplied have been consistent, and our service users have gotten to know the staff. As a result, they can anticipate the needs of our service users better.

Social Work Team (Learning disabilities) at Scottish local authority

Over the past five years of working with the Guild we have established a small, consistent team that support our son. Our son looks forward to seeing the nurses and always enjoys his day with them. We are impressed by the Guild’s management of our son’s support team – the emphasis placed on ensuring their workers attain and maintain competence provides a high level of assurance. We have complete confidence that our son will be provided with the highest level of support by the Guild.

Parent of community service user

I have been using the Guild for three years. During this time, I have had daily care. My nurses have looked after my medication competently and pleasantly. In addition, they are friends who make it possible for me to continue to live in my own home.

Community service user

The Guild has been fantastic at understanding our needs and matching us with nurses who suit our situation. The booking service, which I do by phone, is easy to use. The nurses that come to assist us are professional, kind and have our best interests in mind at all times
