National Locums, the specialist Milton Keynes-based recruitment agency supplying locum doctors to NHS and independent hospitals throughout the UK is celebrating a period of unprecedented growth and success.

The company has……

  • Won new agreements to supply doctors to two additional NHS Frameworks – NHS Shared Business Services and NHS Commercial Alliance – as part of the procurement system used by the government to ensure significant and sustained savings for the taxpayer.
  • Earned ‘Select List’ preferred supplier status with the Isle of Man Department of Health and Department of Social Care, and
  • Gained a coveted ‘Platinum’ rating for the second year running, following an official audit carried out on behalf of the NHS, covering checks on locum doctors’ compliance standards, qualifications, training, employment history and annual NHS approvals.

Says National Locums managing director David Cook: “This is terrific news, and a real testament to everyone who works for us.”

Founded in 2009 by the Cook family, the fast-growing company employs 27 people, made more than 1,100 placements of doctors into hospitals in the past 12 months, and has almost trebled turnover in the past three years.
