"Bluecross is not just a locum agency, it has a family feel. Sonny and his team makes a real effort to get to know you rather than just being a name or number and this makes you feel proud to be part of the Bluecross team.

I have been working for Bluecross for about 6 months and have found the service is friendly, efficient and reliable. I've had no problems with payments and the team works with you to get you shifts you want in the places you want to work.

Overall I would have no hesitations at recommending Bluecross to anyone interested in doing locum work"
Dr. Nisha Patel, ST3 GPVTS
"I have been working with Sonny Pithiya and his team at Bluecross Locums for many years. Bluecross Locums has been by far the best locum agency I know and they provide a highly professional, personalised and friendly service.

Our long-lasting and ongoing collaboration has always been a pleasure. I cannot but highly recommend Bluecross Locums to anyone who is looking for one of the best locum agencies available."
Dr. Florian Wernig, Consultant Physician and Endocrinologist
"Bluecross locums provide a very professional, friendly and personalized service. The team at Bluecross endeavor to find positions which match clients wishes with minimal hassle."
Dr. Ozan Demir, SpR Medicine
"Since day 1 Bluecross Locums have been supportive and have done everything they can to cater for my needs.

They are an understanding and flexible team of people who work hard to place you in the right locum job."
Dr. Irini Yanny, SHO Medicine & A&E
"During my FY2 year, a friend recommended that I join ‘Bluecross Locums’ to supplement an un-banded job. I cannot thank this friend enough as my experience so far has been nothing sure of excellent.

In terms of customer service, pay and amount of work available, I have not come across a better agency. Pay is nothing short of clinical, exact and timely, much like the work expected from us as doctors.

I anticipate working with Sonny and his knowledgeable team members for a long time to come.
Thanks for your support."
Dr. Haroon Sayed, SHO A&E
"Bluecross locums have been really great to work for.

A small company offering a friendly and personalised service, I have always been treated like part of the team. Their rates have been great and they have really helped me get the most out of my work time, and my year out."
Dr. Ching Li, SHO A&E
"I have worked with a few locum agencies but I found Bluecross Locums the best of them.

They have very well trained staff and they look after you very well. I give them dates when I am available and which deanery I want to work; and they contact me when locum shifts are available on that dates and the deanery that I request. You won't get any unnecessary phone calls!

Since I have started working with Bluecross Locum; I have stopped working with other agencies. I highly recommend this locum agency."
Dr Ijaz Khan, SpR Medicine
"During my 6 months off, I initially stuck to my hospital staff bank due to fear of the unknown.

After 4months of late payments I decided to be more adventurous and do some agency work.

I registered with 2 agencies simultaneously; however I made Bluecross Locums my main agency because the staff were extremely nice and developed a personal relationship with me. I didn't have to recite my GMC number every time I called.

More importantly I get paid within 1 week, they are sure to check that I am happy with all the placements and will do anything within their power to help me settle in.

They always respect my availability and don't push me to work beyond this.

Thank you Bluecross Locums for doing such an amazing Job. I will continue to recommend you to all my friends."
Dr. Nkechi Omonigho, SHO Medicine
"The team at Bluecross Locums are professional, friendly, helpful and will go out of their way to make you feel at ease and comfortable with how it all works.

Changing from employed long-term work to short-term ad-hoc locums, possibly as a self-employed person, is pretty daunting but the team are excellent at helping you through the process and making sure you're happy and understand it all. When doing locums in the future, I will always come back to this company and would recommend them to other doctors looking to do locum work."
Dr. Victoria Nunn, SHO Medicine
"Joining Bluecross Locums has been the best agency decision I have ever made. Prior to working with them, I had been working for a number of agencies and none of them were offering the total package which I was looking for. Bluecross does exactly that.

If you’re looking for a caring team, the best rates and consistent shifts then Bluecross is the agency which you want to be working for. The support I have received with all my paperwork and Limited Company, the rates which have consistently been offered, and the shifts which have regularly been given - has been second to none.

Furthermore, the friendliness and understanding of the staff, and the leadership under which it is managed, translates into an agency which has a vision and which primarily looks after its doctors interest. Thank you for all the good work you have been doing and I hope to continue working for Bluecross for many more years to come!"
Dr. S. Khamkar, ST2 A&E
