Testimonials

"I’ve worked with Bluecross on and off for several years and can say that they are hands down the best locum agency out there. Their team work tirelessly to match their doctors to great vacancies and I have always felt very well looked after. The communication from Bluecross is always exceptional and they’re always available to answer questions. I have always felt very respected by the team and they have worked hard to build a strong professional and personal relationship with me during my time with them. All of the Bluecross team I have worked with have been absolutely exemplary but in particular I can’t say enough good things about Howard and Suman who have looked after me very well and again and again matched me with the best vacancies. Also, from the compliance side of things Fouzia has been brilliant in getting me re-compliant, and Samantha has been brilliant at keeping me up to date and is always lovely to interact with.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Bluecross."
Dr Thomas Reid; SpR Urology (April 2019)
"Bluecross is an excellent locum agency. I have several to compare it to. My recruitment consultant Suman is approachable, friendly and easy to get into contact with. I have never had any problems getting information from the Bluecross team. I particularly like that I receive lots and lots of emails with potential shifts, which means I can choose the ones I want. I prefer Bluecross to the other agencies and would recommend them to anyone looking for a locum agency."
Dr Karandeep Nandra; SHO Med; (April 2019)

My consultant Howard is dynamic and dedicated to providing only a first class service. He has been instrumental is sourcing the jobs responsive to my needs. 
Compliance Team Leader Samantha is always accommodating and my go to person- if I have any concerns or require further documentation prior to starting a shift, she knows what is needed and does not delay to inform me. She is an amazing source of support.
 
There is always consistent high quality service at Bluecross Locums."
Dr Natasha Bankole; SpR A&E (April 2019)
"Working with Bluecross was a great experience. Jake was always available and really accommodating with my flexible availability. He was helpful with any payment or contract issues. Getting compliant was made easy and very quick. Great locum agency and have already recommended it to friends."
Dr Olivia Freemantle; SHO Med (April 2019)
"Working with Bluecross was very easy and always reliable. Jake was readily contactable and would ensure Locum work revolves around your availability. I switched to Bluecross after hearing good reviews from friends. Time to become compliant took a few weeks which is standard, but the process was very easy. I would recommend Bluecross to anyone looking for Locum work in and around London."
Dr Adam Wright; SHO Med (April 2019)
"I have worked with Bluecross since September last year and they have been excellent so far! My shifts have been arranged through Howard Johnson, who has been nothing but professional and extremely helpful. He has helped arrange work at North Middlesex Hospital and Kings College Hospital A&E departments, ensuring shifts are booked in advance or at short notice (when needed) and following up my pay as well. He is very responsive to emails and messages, and ensures any queries are dealt with promptly. I am very happy working with Bluecross and hope to continue working with them. I would highly recommend joining Bluecross as they are very reliable!"
Dr Jayani Suriyakumaran; SHO A&E, Psych & Oncology (March 2019)
"I was recommended Bluecross locums by a friend studying in the same masters program as me. From the very moment I had registered my interest, Bluecross Locums were very proactive in engaging with me, making me feel welcome and helping me navigate through the paperwork and other requirements to be registered as a locum doctor. Coming from another health system (Australia), it was very helpful to have their guidance and advice. My compliance officer (Fouzia & Samantha) keeps me on my toes, making sure I have everything up to date in a friendly manner and is always very willing to answer any queries I may have. My recruitment consultant (Chloe) has helped me get locum shifts at the time and place that is convenient for me and is very flexible to my varying schedule. I would definitely recommend Bluecross Locums to other doctors looking to Locum here in London."
Dr Alice McGushin; SHO A&E (December 2018)
"I have been working with Bluecross LTD since September 2018. I have worked closely with Fouzia Saleem and Howard Johnson.
 
When going through the application process, I ran into some difficulty due to some occupational health issues, which meant that further evidence of occupational health clearance was required. Fouzia handled this stressful situation professionally and ensured that she did her best to get the situation dealt with.
Once I was signed up, I was allocated Howard who deals with booking me in for A&E shifts. He has been nothing but excellent over the last two months; always ensures I have shifts that suit me and is always happy to help. He is always polite, approachable and always replies whenever I have questions.
 
Overall my experience working with Bluecross has been a positive one and because of this I have not felt the need to sign up with an alternative agency. I would definitely recommend Bluecross to any doctor who is looking for locum work."
Dr Leila El Bakkali (October 2018)
"I am so glad I joined Bluecross and really enjoy working with them.
They are professional, efficient and helpful and offer a personalised experience.
Thank you to Krishan who made the signing up process easy and quick and a very big thank you to Howard, who is attentive and always goes above and beyond to get me the shifts I want and answer any questions quickly.
Overall everyone I have come across has been friendly and approachable. I would highly recommend Bluecross!"
Dr Bhavni Shah; SHO A&E, Surgery & Medicine (September 2018)
"I think Bluecross is a really great agency to work for, I had heard good things about it prior to joining up and these have all been confirmed. There are loads of shifts available at all sorts of different hospitals, which makes it super easy to find shifts at the time and place that I am hoping for. Communication is really good with Bluecross staff, emails are responded to promptly and questions answered - everyone seems to know how the systems work and have good advice. Payment has been really prompt and always get the rates as advertised. 
 
Registration took a long time, there was a lot of paperwork, but that’s the same with all agencies. It was really useful to have a person assigned to me who kept track of what I still needed to provide, this meant it was always very clear what I had done and what I still needed to do. It was also great that you guys could arrange the DBS  check and E-learning for me with minimal hassle.
 
I think I’ve been really lucky with the people assigned to me. Fouzia was awesome, really on top of things and always knew what I needed to do. She must have hated how slow I was at getting things to her, but she was always really nice about it!
Chloe is fab!! She has booked me all the shifts I wanted and have been looking out for shifts that she thinks will suit me even though I have been really unclear about my schedule and availability. Always answer my emails really quickly and just seem to know everything!! Thank you Chloe :)
 
I definitely would recommend Bluecross, and have done to a number of friends! I haven’t worked for any other agencies, so can’t compare, but have always heard that Bluecross is the best."
Dr Anna Burn-Murdoch; SHO A&E (Sept 2018
