"I joined Bluecross in 2009 for locum work - what can I say about Sonny and his whole team?

They are very supportive, informative, cooperative and above all a very friendly company. Sonny is a very helpful and approachable person who can advise you on matters that you may not be aware of. I have never bothered looking for other companies as they have plenty of work depending on your circumstances. They pay on time and I haven’t had any issues with them regarding payments.

They are fantastic team as a whole and it is a pleasure to continue working for them whenever opportunity arises from my full time job."
Dr S. Budha MD MRCP
"I would like to say something so simple and important about my time and experience at Blue Cross Locums.

I worked with Blue Cross Locums since 2008. This is based on mutual understanding, trust and working as a team player. Everything is simple when working with Bluecross; payments are on time, the team are trustworthy and help whenever possible, and they help you to develop skills in your area.
You receive straightforward payments and it is regular income that you can trust; and you are never unemployed.
I cannot find any simpler way to define my experience other than this.

I only wish to thank Sonny and his team."
Dr. Syed-Mehdi Mohammadi MD, MRCS, Specialist Registrar in General and Vascular Surgery
"As a Locum Doctor, I am very impressed with the staff at Bluecross Locums because my registration was processed promptly and I started working with them after less than 2 weeks of registration.

Timesheets have always been processed the same week and I have been paid on time.

The staff at Bluecross Locums are very friendly and helpful. I remember when I had a problem with the timing of my shift, one of the staff phoned the hospital Consultant in charge and it was resolved on the same day, while I was still on duty."
Dr. Kefe Edu
"Having worked for several locum agencies in the past, I can say without a doubt that Bluecross Locums is the best agency to work with.

Mr. Suresh Pithiya and his team always deliver a professional and efficient service and can be counted on to meet your every need and concern regarding locum work, regardless of what that might be.
Most importantly, payments are made every week without fail and at competitive rates, so with a team that provides all this and gives you exposure to the best NHS hospitals in London and beyond, what more could anyone ask for?

I would definitely highly recommend Bluecross Locums to everyone!"
Dr. Geraldine Odor, SHO, Accident and Emergency
"I have worked with BlueCross for 3 months now and can find no fault.
They have an efficient face-to-face registration process and a very friendly, enthusiastic and approachable team finding work to suit my personal circumstances. They are reliable, always pay on time and I’ve particularly enjoyed developing a professional relationship with staff.

I look forward to many more years with them and would thoroughly recommend them to doctors looking for locum work to supplement their income around their training commitments."
Dr. Rickey Raja, ST2 Junior Clinical Fellow in Emergency Medicine, London
"I have worked with Bluecross for the last four years and while I have tried several other agencies I have found that Bluecross consistently provide the best overall service. The entire operation is run extremely efficiently – doctors are informed of shifts as soon as they become available and once you are booked for a shift you can rest assured that there will never be a late cancellation.

There are always an abundance of shifts to choose from and you are able to book your rota several weeks to months in advance at the hospital of your choice; yet can also easily find a shift to work at short notice if you suddenly find yourself with some free time. Confirmation mails with all shifts booked for each individual month are sent immediately and constantly updated so that you are never in any doubt about your schedule. Payment, as one would expect is always prompt and regular.

The one aspect of Bluecross for me that allows them to edge out all the competing agencies is their personal touch - you are always in contact with the same people that understand your individual needs and tailor their communication accordingly. There really is no need to work through more than one agency when you work for Bluecross."
Dr. Costa Karras, A&E, Locum Registrar
"I have now been with Bluecross for over 5 years. All of the staff are extremely professional and very approachable. Moreover, over the years I have developed a relationship with the staff at the office that I cherish. They have always catered to my needs as an individual and have always successfully managed to place me whenever I was available.

I have never had a late payment. In fact with regards to finances, they offer excellent guidance on how to set up as an independent company and have access to knowledgeable accountants. I look forward to many more years working with Sonny and his team at Bluecross."
Dr. Hitesh Patel, MBBS BSc MRCP DRCOG
"Working with the Blue Cross team is a pleasure - each member of the team is highly professional, efficient, hard-working and invested in quality locum placements, not to mention our careers! No other agency has the same awareness and infrastructure to help with a locum doctor’s revalidation needs (in line with GMC protocols) and extends a "family" like feel to all its doctors.

I highly recommend the Bluecross team to anyone who asks!"
Dr. Myra Gilligan
"I've been working with Bluecross for several months now. They are a professional locum agency who provide an excellent, efficient and friendly service tailored to my needs.

Their registration process is quick & hassle free. They got to know my shift requirements very quickly and provide me with shifts whenever I need them. They have also taken an interest in continued professional development and have enrolled me on a number of courses.

This is undoubtedly the best locum agency I have worked with, and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone who is keen to do locum work."
Dr. Pratipal Kalsi BSc(Hons), MRCS (Lon)
"In all my years of working with locum agencies, I have found none with the dedication to individuals, personal touch & constant professionalism of the Bluecross team. The candidate always comes first with this company, and it is a testament to this that I count Sonny amongst my personal friends due to his dedication to me and my career in my years working with them."
Dr. Kpakpo Acquaye
