Testimonials

"I have been working with Bluecross Locums during this past F3 year, and it has been absolutely great! One thing I love about Bluecross is that you are known as an individual and they take your job preferences seriously. I was quite nervous about the whole process at first, but the staff at Bluecross are so friendly, approachable and helpful. Registration was easy and they take you through one step at a time. Best of all, they managed to secure me consistent, but flexible ad-hoc work in the hospital and department I wanted. I could not ask for more. They organise everything for you and you can always call to speak to someone if you need to. I was always paid on time, without any issues at all. Also, a special mention to Sonny (managing director) who is the friendliest person ever and runs the company with humility. He would frequently check to make sure that my needs were being met and respond to any queries promptly. It has been a pleasure working with Bluecross Locums, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for locum work."
Dr Danielle Roberts; SHO Med (July 2018)
"Howard has been excellent at advising me on hospitals and departments, and has always found me sufficient amounts of work at A&E departments. He is very reliable and easily accessible via email or phone. 
Bluecross have excelled in comparison to other agencies at finding me work - so thank you!"
Dr Helena Sandford; SHO A&E & Med (July 2018)
"I have found Bluecross Locums to be a highly professional organisation and all members of staff are very easy to work with.
 
Lauren has been exceptionally helpful in obtaining jobs on dates that I request, around my specific weekly/monthly schedule. She has been extremely easy to liaise with and works hard to ensure my requirements are met as a locum doctor. It is my pleasure to be working with Lauren.
 
I am very grateful to have met Fouzia during my induction at Bluecross Locums. She was especially helpful in assisting me with induction procedures and ensuring up to date documentation. I have found Fouzia to be a very warm and friendly person who is more than willing to provide assistance and answer any questions I may have as a locum doctor.
 

It is an absolute pleasure to be working with both members of staff and with Bluecross Locums as a company."
Dr Rickin Dattani (July 2018)
"Bluecross Locums was recommended to me by a friend, and I would recommend too! I have found Bluecross to be friendly, approachable and timely in their information and correspondence regarding work, and staff have certainly tried to cater for my needs as a locum including type and place of work. They have responded to any queries or issues I have had at my workplace, and are always available via email or phone, always keeping me updated. I feel that as a slightly smaller locum agency, Bluecross are able to give a more personalised service and are very accommodating. Thanks."
Dr Helen McMahon; ST1 T&O (June 2018)
"My experience with BlueCross Locums has been exceptional. In particular Howard Johnson my recruitment consultant was extremely diligent and helpful in getting me the shifts I wanted in the hospitals that I wanted them in. We built up a great rapport and I would recommend him highly to anyone."
Dr Ricky Sharma; SHO A&E, Surgery and Medicine (June 2018)
"I am a locum SHO doctor and have been working through Bluecross locum agency for the last 8 months. During that time Bluecross have been able to provide me with shifts on a near to full time basis at my chosen hospitals. I have found that communication with Bluecross and their representatives has been relatively easy – email and telephone contact is generally responded to promptly. Working through Bluecross has been optimal for me due to their excellent relationship with a number of key trusts and departments across London. I intend to continue working with Bluecross inside and outside of London in the future.
 
Howard has been my main point of contact for arranging shifts at King’s College Hospital A&E department – where I have completed the majority of my work over the last 8 months. In general I have found Howard to be very friendly and approachable. Howard is very pro-active, ensuring that availability is known ahead of time and shows initiative by arranging shifts for me based on this availability. Where there have been occasional hiccups or miscommunications with the department (i.e. department expecting me when I have not been confirmed for a shift) Howard has been excellent at communicating with them  on my behalf, acting as an advocate and correcting any misunderstanding that may have occurred.
I would, and have, recommended Bluecross to several of my colleagues who are looking to locum."
Dr Kelly Vallance; SHO A&E & Med (June 2018)
"I have been a locum doctor with Bluecross now for over 6 months and during this time I have found the agency to be efficient, timely and attentive. 
My main recruitment consultant throughout this time has been Howard and he has always been helpful, friendly and well organised. He works hard to ensure I am getting the work I want at my preferred hospitals and departments.
I would recommend Bluecross and Howard as a recruitment consultant as in my own experience I have found them to be more attentive and caring than other agencies I have worked with in the past. They strive to ensure doctors get paid on time and get the shifts they require."
Dr Rupinder Gill; SHO A&E, Med and Surgery (May 2018)
"I wanted to say thank you for all your hard work in securing regular shifts for me, since taking over last year. With the introduction of IR35, there have been many changes to the structure of locuming; you have been a consistent point of contact, responding quickly and efficiently to any queries (particularly those above and beyond your job description), via email or phone, that I may have. These qualities along with your professionalism, are why I continue my partnership with Bluecross and recommend the agency to other colleagues."
Dr Lauren Hamilton; JCF A&E, Surgery & Medicine (May 2018)
"Bluecross is a friendly, well run locum agency, who are considerate to both their clients and the doctors that work for them.
The registration is tedious, however, I understand that this is unavoidable. I would have preferred not to have come in for the face to face meeting, but nevertheless, it was good to meet the staff and see who's behind the emails and calls.
Chloe is my recruitment officer and has been a dream to work with. She is always on the ball, and responds to emails almost instantly and tries her best to taylor job opportunities to your requirements.
Yes, I would most definitely recommend Bluecross. I appreciate not being called, and being emailed instead!"
Dr Jason Gan; SHO A&E (May 2018)
"My experience with Bluecross has generally been positive. In particular, any query I've ever had about pay has been dealt with promptly and everyone I've had interaction with has been very helpful.
I have recommended BlueCross to several friends, some of whom are on your books now. 
 
I think compared to other agencies I've dealt with BlueCross does seem smaller, friendlier and more client focussed. I think in comparison to other agencies people I know work for, BlueCross is definitely one of the better agencies. I think you guys do well to secure good rates. I know other agencies pay more but in my interactions with them I've found them a bit pushy. Feedback I've heard about other agencies has been fairly mixed. I think BlueCross generally seems to have good understanding about the way we work, e.g. you don't put people forward for inappropriate posts (e.g. too high a grade, wrong speciality etc.). 
 
Lauren has been absolutely great, Her service has been completely faultless and has exceeded my expectations. She's professional and friendly at the same time, and seems very caring. She responds to my emails very quickly, and always helps me sort out issues beyond her remit, directing me to the right person at BlueCross. For example, she recently went out of her way to provide me with a glowing reference for my new landlady. She seems to work super hard. She's made me feel appreciated and forwarded positive feedback from hospitals on to me which has been really nice to receive. She clearly has a good relationship herself with a number of hospitals she works with. I'm sure it can't be easy for agencies to find people who work so diligently and conscientiously - I'm sure she's well appreciated at BlueCross and that you will work hard to keep her working with you. She's an asset to your organisation :-)"
