"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
"Working with BlueCross is great; it’s like being with my family. They offer a supportive and extremely committed in providing an organized & professional service. They have a real team focus, are flexible in the provision of locum shifts, and most importantly - pay accurately & promptly. Highly recommended, I would not work with anyone else."
Dr. Saf Nazir
"I have worked for nearly three years with Bluecross. They are a team that can be described as very competent, supportive, professional, reliable and friendly. By knowing my shift pattern and requirements, I am always able to work flexible hours which allow me to have a balance between medical and family life.

By organizing conferences and online training, the Bluecross team is helping us immensely for appraisal and continuous professional development.

All my colleagues who work with the Bluecross team say that the service is unparalleled and it is the most distinguished medical agency that they have ever worked with from every angle."
Dr. Mohsen Dehagi MD MSc, ED Staff Grade, London
"Working with Bluecross Locums has allowed me the flexibility to continue studying for my Masters, whilst providing me a stable income. The family atmosphere and warmth of the agency has been of great solace to me. The team, work around my availability and I have never been forced into doing more work than I can cope with, or hours which are not suitable for me. Once in the Bluecross family, you feel you can always turn to them for advice.

The best decision I made when taking a year out to study, was to join Bluecross Locums, and I will continue working with them in the future."
Dr. Jay Vyas
"I applied to several locum agencies as an SHO. The Bluecross staff are friendly, helpful and efficient and really look after the doctors working with them. They had me registered and working within a week, they provide me with regular and convenient shifts, and I know I will always be getting the best rates on the market. I have not looked back since."
Dr. Ehsan Weidi
