 Bluecross Locums have been supplying locums to us in the Emergency Department for approximately three years. We began to use them when it became obvious that the Trust's preferred agency was completely unable to cope with the high demand that we had for locums.

The high demand was because of large vacancy rates particularly for registrar grades. We continue to use them in conjunction with locums provided by the Trust's preferred agency to enable us to maintain the service and performance.

Bluecross have a large pool of high calibre Doctors (good Registrars and SHO's) many of whom work regularly in our department. The quality of their files on each Doctor (CV's, reference etc.), speed and accuracy of confirmations is exceptional. The fill rates are high and extremely speedy -  in about 80% of cases shifts can be filled in a few minutes.

The team is extremely committed to provide both ourselves and their doctors with a professional, friendly and flexible service.
