Testimonials

"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
"I joined Bluecross Locums on advice by a good friend and have never looked back.

I always hear a cheerful voice and laughter at the other end when I call and I’m very impressed with the level of professionalism, not to mention the rates which are clearly the best in town!

I have also recommended 2 of my colleagues and they have joined Bluecross Locums; they still cannot believe the rates they are getting."
Dr. G.O, Locum ST A&E
"It has been an excellent relationship with both parties having mutual respect and trust for each other.
I can guarantee and vouch that Bluecross looks after all their locums - your interest is at the heart of their operation.

‘You are never alone with Bluecross’

Locums are guaranteed regular locum positions with trusts of your choice, payments of services rendered is guaranteed and prompt.

I have no regrets whatsoever for being with Bluecross for so long and I sincerely believe that the sky is the limit for Sonny and all the team."
Dr. Kay Ojewumi, Locum ED Registrar
"I have worked with 6 agencies over the past 5 years. I eventually came across Bluecross and now I work for nobody else for the following reasons:
Best rate of pay - Bluecross take their commission but not your pay.
Excellent service - Sonny has helped me protect my limited company from any liability. Most doctors are unaware of this.
I am paid within a week - In the past I have waited weeks with other larger agencies.
Most importantly he is honest and to date none of the other agencies have demonstrated this to me.

I am writing this because I have realised that I have been exploited up until now."
Dr. Sarfaraz Munshi
"Bluecross is an agency like no other. Every locum doctor has slightly different reasons and objectives for their locum work. Bluecross took time to understand my family situation and my financial and career objectives. They have delivered outstanding placements relevant to my specialty. Their service has been friendly and truly tailored as Bluecross know their doctors. The CEO of the company is friendly and approachable and actively supports the work his staff and doctors."
Dr. Chris Day, ACCS CT2 London Deanery
"I have been involved with a few locum agencies and Bluecross Locums is most definitely the best I have worked with and my main agency. I find the staff at Bluecross exceptionally friendly, approachable and always willing to go the extra mile. What makes the company even more special is that personal touch they seem to maintain at all times. It makes working with them a pleasure. Not to mention, the company is reliable, consistent and extremely competitive with their rates. I have happily recommended Bluecross to all my friends and colleagues who are interested and will continue to do so.

Keep up the good work guys!"
Dr. John Afolayan MBBS, BSc, MRCS, D.P.M.S.A, AKC
"I was introduced to Bluecross Locums by a colleague who recommended you as the leading locum agency. I am glad to say that I could not agree more with the statement.

I am extremely pleased with the regular work provided by Blue Cross Locums. From the very beginning, I knew that I had made the right decision in trusting you to supply me with locum work. Even more impressive was the prompt and efficient manner in which you secured short-term jobs for me.
While locuming part-time, Bluecross Locums have understood and accommodated my personal requests and preferences. They most certainly provide a high-quality service and I have developed a trusting relationship with them.

I highly recommend Bluecross Locums as they have been reliable and loyal to me. A call to Sonny, Gemma or Kerrie will help you work smarter, not harder!"
Dr. Ojukwu
