Testimonials

"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
"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
