As part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme, ten members of the National Locums team took part in the Ox5 charity run on Sunday, 17th April, in aid of Oxford Children’s Hospital.

The Terrific Ten, who had formed a run club to train for the event, all finished the course at Blenheim Palace in less than an hour.

Better still, so far they have raised £926 for the hospital, one of more than 240 across the nation to whom they supply locum doctors, nurses and allied healthcare professionals.

Says National Locums events and marketing manager Nicola Cook:”We’d love it if we could reach the magic £1,000 mark, so if any of our friends, suppliers or colleagues wants to make an extra donation, here’s the link –

The Oxford Children’s Hospital is one of only a handful of purpose-built specialist centres for children in the UK. It is very close to the hearts of National Locums directors Jen and David Cook, whose children Evan and Jessica have been treated at the hospital, as has Riley, son of directors Natalie and Glenn Cook.
