National Locums in European drive to help combat shortage of NHS doctors and nurses
"We're crucially aware that the NHS faces challenging times in recruiting and retaining doctors and nurses", says National Locums managing director David Cook, "so we're taking our team to major recruitment fairs across Europe, as well as throughout the UK.
"We know there are many medical professionals around the world who want to work in the NHS, which is recognised globally for its excellent quality standards."
National Locums will be recruiting doctors, nurses and allied healthcare professionals at European events in Portugal (June 6th, Porto, June 7th, Lisbon) Spain (June 13th, Barcelona, June 14th, Madrid) Greece (June 20th, Thessaloniki, June 21st, Athens) and Poland (June 27th, Cracow, June 28th, Warsaw).
In addition, the company has a full calendar of exhibitions in the UK, including The Royal College of Psychiatrists International Congress (June 29th-July 2nd, Birmingham) and the BMJ Careers Fair (October 23rd and 24th, London).
Practitioners attending these events are invited to visit the National Locums stand, and discover some of the UK's most exciting career opportunities.
National Locums is one of Britain's fastest-growing and most dynamic medical recruitment agencies. In the past 12 months, the company has found work for more than 4,000 doctors, and has regular assignments from 212 hospitals across the country.
During that period, the company also won coveted NHS audit Platinum status for the second year running, and added four new NHS Framework (preferred supplier) awards to its roster.
