Testimonials

"I was referred to Bluecross by a colleague who was already working with them a few months ago, and I went on to apply with them for locum work. Getting in touch with the team members is always fast and responsive, and the general atmosphere is at a level that it does not feel like a formal work relationship, which makes it way easier to get in contact with for work related issues.
 
The team members that I interact with, namely Suman, Sam and Fouzia are always keen to help for any situations that might arise due to work. The work options given to me are always specialized to the parameters that I asked for, and they are always happy to adjust their options to me in cases I had to change my preferences due to various reasons.
 
The registration process can be daunting due to the amount of paperwork needed, but in retrospect it's not that much more than it would be needed for any other NHS related job. The team members are patient and understanding with delays that occur while you hunt down that last bit of paperwork needed.
 
Overall, I would recommend working with Bluecross locums to any friend and colleague who would be interested."
Dr Theodoros Panagaris; SHO Med (June 2019)
"My thoughts on Bluecross - a caring and competent locum agency who provide very much an individualised approach. Nothing was too difficult for them and their communication is superb. They have been a pleasure to deal with.
 
Registration process thoughts - for what is an arduous and tedious process by nature, Bluecross make it as easy as possible and are willing to go both out of their way and the extra mile to explain things. All my questions were answered promptly and competently, and always with a smile too.
 
Honest opinion on working relationships - my working relationships with my recruitment consultant, compliance officer etc at Bluecross feel very personal and it feels like they genuinely care which is nice. They have been the easiest people to deal with out of any locum agency I've dealt with. I feel like I can approach them about anything and feel confident I'll get a genuine and honest reply very promptly. There is a high level of trust I have with Bluecross.
 
Would I recommend Bluecross - most definitely. Bluecross would be the first agency I would recommend to anyone"
Dr Alexander Carr; SHO Ortho (May 2019
"It has been a pleasure to work with BlueCross. I had been recommended this locum agency by a friend who also had a positive experience with them. Starting off firstly with the compliance team, Fouzia was extremely understanding of different circumstances when gathering the documents & took the time to explain what was required from me.
 
Jake and Suman have always been available when needed and has been very readily contactable. BlueCross' booking system is very effective. Booking shifts has been smooth for me thus far.
I would certainly recommend this agency for my friends and colleagues!"
Dr Se Jung Park; SHO Med (May 2019)
"Bluecross is an extremely effective agency. I work within the NHS since 2002 and I can say that they are truly the best. My recruitment consultant Suman is approachable and friendly. Also Jake, Sonny and all the members of the team are very kind and helpful. I have never had any problems getting information from the Bluecross team. I particularly like that I receive many job offers, giving me a wide variety of choices. I prefer Bluecross to the other agencies and would gladly recommend them to any other colleague in the UK and abroad"
Dr Nikolaos Sfougkatakis Daskalakis; Cons Gastroenterology (April 2019)
"I’ve worked with Bluecross on and off for several years and can say that they are hands down the best locum agency out there. Their team work tirelessly to match their doctors to great vacancies and I have always felt very well looked after. The communication from Bluecross is always exceptional and they’re always available to answer questions. I have always felt very respected by the team and they have worked hard to build a strong professional and personal relationship with me during my time with them. All of the Bluecross team I have worked with have been absolutely exemplary but in particular I can’t say enough good things about Howard and Suman who have looked after me very well and again and again matched me with the best vacancies. Also, from the compliance side of things Fouzia has been brilliant in getting me re-compliant, and Samantha has been brilliant at keeping me up to date and is always lovely to interact with.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Bluecross."
Dr Thomas Reid; SpR Urology (April 2019)
"Bluecross is an excellent locum agency. I have several to compare it to. My recruitment consultant Suman is approachable, friendly and easy to get into contact with. I have never had any problems getting information from the Bluecross team. I particularly like that I receive lots and lots of emails with potential shifts, which means I can choose the ones I want. I prefer Bluecross to the other agencies and would recommend them to anyone looking for a locum agency."

Compliance Team Leader Samantha is always accommodating and my go to person- if I have any concerns or require further documentation prior to starting a shift, she knows what is needed and does not delay to inform me. She is an amazing source of support.

Dr Natasha Bankole; SpR A&E (April 2019)
"Working with Bluecross was a great experience. Jake was always available and really accommodating with my flexible availability. He was helpful with any payment or contract issues. Getting compliant was made easy and very quick. Great locum agency and have already recommended it to friends."
Dr Olivia Freemantle; SHO Med (April 2019)
"Working with Bluecross was very easy and always reliable. Jake was readily contactable and would ensure Locum work revolves around your availability. I switched to Bluecross after hearing good reviews from friends. Time to become compliant took a few weeks which is standard, but the process was very easy. I would recommend Bluecross to anyone looking for Locum work in and around London."
Dr Adam Wright; SHO Med (April 2019)
"I have worked with Bluecross since September last year and they have been excellent so far! My shifts have been arranged through Howard Johnson, who has been nothing but professional and extremely helpful. He has helped arrange work at North Middlesex Hospital and Kings College Hospital A&E departments, ensuring shifts are booked in advance or at short notice (when needed) and following up my pay as well. He is very responsive to emails and messages, and ensures any queries are dealt with promptly. I am very happy working with Bluecross and hope to continue working with them. I would highly recommend joining Bluecross as they are very reliable!"
