Testimonials

"From the start Bluecross has made my locum experience so easy. As soon as I signed up on the internet they called me and got the registration process going so I could be compliant for work when I needed to be. They sent me regular reminders when I was running out of time or when I was missing a document etc. 
Everyone has always been easily accessible to contact either via telephone or email- with responses pretty much always being on the same day and with Chloe usually within the hour! Chloe has been so attentive to what I asked for when I joined the agency and always thinks ahead when booking my shifts so I am never short of work. She is also lovely and approachable to speak to which is a bonus. She is incredibly professional and very good at her job. 
I would and have already recommended Bluecross to my colleagues due to the ease of its use, the staff, the smooth way it works and how much work they are able to offer and cater to your needs primarily."
Dr Eliana Shekarchi-Khanghahi; SHO A&E (October 2017)
"Bluecross manage to come across as a small, personal agency, yet still manage to offer shifts at many different hospitals rivalling it with the bigger agencies.
Registration was relatively simple- quick access to relevant online modules, face to face set meeting set up promptly.
All the staff I've communicated with are very proactive, very quick to respond to emails, very quick to help sort out any issues.
Chloe has been excellent to work with. She comes across as very hard working and very good at her job. Again- she responds to emails almost instantly, takes into account preferences, is proactive about finding my preferred shifts and helps with any other queries that may not necessarily be in her remit. She also isn't pushy and doesn't hassle you- I don't feel pressurised  or like I'm being persuaded to take certain shifts I may not want to take (unlike consultants from other agencies).
Lauren, similarly to Chloe is a very good consultant to work with.
Elizabeth in finance is really great. She appears to go out of her way to solve problems and answer queries related to pay without any delay. You don't have to chase her for a response.
Samantha- very helpful during the registration process.
I would 100% recommend working with Bluecross. Compared to other agencies they seem much more personal, genuine, proactive and helpful."
Dr Hannah Worthington; SHO A&E (October 2017
"My experience of working with Bluecross has been very positive. Registration was straightforward and everyone has been most helpful. I've already recommended the agency to a couple of friends and would happily do so again."
Dr Michael David Smith; JCF Med (October 2017
"Having worked for several locum agencies in the past, Bluecross is by far the only locum agency I have worked for where it looks out for it's doctors. I have felt very well supported and feel that this is the only locum agency where profits don't come first. With other locum agencies it seemed that all they cared about was booking shifts, not so with Bluecross."
Dr Thomas Stewart; JCF A&E (October 2017)
"I recently joined Bluecross as recommended to me by a friend. I can honestly say the service has been great. The registration process was swift and required one face to face visit. I encountered friendly faces whom were willing to work with me and according to my needs.  I work closest with Lauren and she has been very helpful. I rely on her heavily to find shifts that suit me as I often do not have time to look for shifts. She is very efficient and ensures that I am booked in advance to shifts that I am suited too. She is very approachable yet professional. From hearing about other locum agencies from fellow colleagues I have none of the complaints they have had and thank Lauren for all her hard work as she makes it very easy for me. I have already recommended Bluecross to my colleagues and will continue to do so."
Dr Natasha Malik; SHO A&E (October 2017)
"I've been with Bluecross Locums for almost a year now and Howard has been my main point of contact. Howard has been extremely helpful and always able to meet my requirements. As a doctor who is looking for ad hoc work only, I find Howard to have the essential qualities to excel in his job: organised, responsive and reliable.
 
I have enjoyed working with Howard and would definitely recommend him to my colleagues. It is certainly my pleasure to have him as my recruitment consultant."
Dr Mina Ip; SHO Surg & A&E (October 2017)
"I have been working with Howard Johnson for the better part of the last year. His role was to mediate employment for myself at various hospitals and was my main point of contact at Bluecross.
 
Howard is always a pleasure to work with, bringing excellent attention to detail to all aspects of his work. His communication and people skills are excellent and have always been impressed with the way that he has approached work, an asset to Bluecross."
Dr Farrah Bahsoon; SHO A&E Med (October 2017)
"Bluecross were a pleasure to work with - organised, professional and always helpful. I would definitely recommend Bluecross to friends and colleagues, by far the best locum agency I've interacted with."
Dr Joel Schamroth; SHO A&E (September 2017)
"I have been working with Howard at BlueCross for just over a year now. I have always found him to be approachable, contactable and flexible. It has been a pleasure to work with him and I look forward to continuing my working relationship with him and BlueCross. 
 
Having worked with another agency in the past, I can say that BlueCross offers competitive hourly rates and great customer service for locum doctors."
Dr Hong Gao; SHO A&E, Med, Urology (September 2017)
"Bluecross Locums was the only agency I used during my F3 year despite signing up to other supposedly 'bigger' agencies. This was due to the personal and professional way I was treated by them.
Samantha Claridge was very patient and helpful with getting my account up and running, and ensured my account remained compliant.
 
I could not have asked for more from Howard Johnson, my recruitment consultant. He always went above and beyond to get me shifts that perfectly fit my unique schedule. He answered every one of my questions in a prompt and friendly manner, and was always available both over email or phone. I was given shift options at times that suited me and hospitals that were convenient for me, and never felt pressurised to take on shifts I did not want to.
 
I have recommended Bluecross Locums to many fellow colleagues and will continue to do so. It was a pleasure working with them."
Dr Kushal Shah; A&E & Paeds (August 2017)
