Agency Fees

The Agency Fees form part of Night Owls Terms & Conditions and establish the charges made for its services. Since the Agency Fee is based entirely upon the cost of supplying a suitable Maternity Nurse, this charge remains the same irrespective of whether the Maternity Nurse is working days, nights or live-in.

It is important to note that the Agency Fee is an additional charge to that made by the Maternity Nurse and is paid separately to the Agency upon the issuing of a Night Owls Invoice. The Invoice can be issued at the time of booking, when the specific dates are agreed or will be issued at the end of a booking period once the actual dates that the Maternity Nurse has worked, are known.

iod once the actual dates that the Maternity Nurse has worked, are known.

Introductory Fee

Due to the amount of time required to identify available Maternity Nurses, we may charge a deposit of £50 payable at the time of the client’s initial enquiry. If the client subsequently chooses one of the Maternity Nurse’s Night Owls has referred to them, this cost will be deducted from the Agency fee charged. Clients are required to pay the deposit and complete the registration form before Night Owls is able to send you details of available Maternity Nurses.
