National Locums, one of the nation’s leading consultancies supplying doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals to the NHS, has received the highest Platinum rating for its services.

The NHS requires regular audits of Framework (preferred supplier) agencies, and Milton Keynes-based National Locums earned the coveted Platinum rating, with a score of 98.5.

The audit was carried out by Neuven Solutions, an independent compliance auditor, for the major HealthTrust-Total Workforce Solutions Framework, covering NHS hospitals throughout the country.

Says National Locums managing director David Cook: “We invest heavily in the right people and the best technology, ensuring that we supply the NHS with motivated, fully-qualified professionals, on budget and on time. It’s extremely gratifying to score so highly in an independent audit.”
