About Us


Bluecross Locum's philosophy is to work with pride and integrity on delivering a personal service in an open, honest and transparent way, without compromising our standards.

Read our Customer Service Pledge.

Bluecross Locums is a specialist staffing agency for locum doctors that have been providing doctors to London’s leading Trusts since 2003. We focus purely on the supply of locum medical doctors - we are not distracted by doing any other kind of recruitment. All of our processes are tailored towards supplying flexible workers for shift rotas.

Our registered doctors sit across the clinical spectrum of specialties and grades that are most sought after by Trusts. Among our Clients are some of the most prestigious Trusts in London, world renowned for their outstanding patient care and robust departments. From 2003 until 2012, Bluecross Locums worked as a non-framework agency and provided services to the highest standards possible. In 2012 we were awarded a place onto the London Procurement Partnership and this has enabled us to expand our portfolio of Clients.

As a locum doctor agency we take care to ensure that all doctors registered with us are compliant to framework standards. Bluecross Locums offers a full agency service which minimises administration from the hospital perspective and maximises patient care. In the last 12 months we have been successfully audited by the following organisations:

  • Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) Jan 2013 (Result: Gold Audit Status)
  • KPMG Audited 2010/ 2011
  • Neuven December 2011 (Result: Platinum award status)
  • ISO 9001: 2008 – Quality Management (Annual audit)
  • ISO 14001: 2004 – Environmental Considerations (Annual audit)

Bluecross Locums has been built purely on recommendation. Read our testimonials from some of our most prestigious doctors. We operate a 24/7 on call facility and when you call,  you will receive an appointed Compliance Officer who will look after your documentation and a dedicated Recruitment Consultant who will deal with your bookings and availability. Therefore you only have two people to speak to, not a different person each time.

Recently we have started to provide our doctors with Revalidation and Appraisal support, including seminars, productive advice and reading material, portfolio review and fully CPD accredited courses at discounted prices. Keep an eye on our news page for updates on Revalidation.

We help our doctors every step of the way, offering advice, training, development and compliance to meet regulatory legislations and to support Trusts in their day to day practices.
