Milton Keynes-based medical recruiter National Locums is celebrating a raft of new business wins.

National Locums has been appointed to 13 new NHS Frameworks (preferred supplier agreements) covering 34 hospitals across the UK.

This followed the company’s appointment to two of the largest NHS preferred supplier agreements – Crown Commercial Service Framework and HealthTrust Europe – for the supply of doctors, nurses and allied healthcare professionals.

National Locums, which has just won the Milton Keynes Business of the Year Award, is one of the fastest-growing medical recruitment companies in the country.

Says managing director David Cook: “We are particularly pleased to have won these new agreements at a time when the NHS is facing stringent controls on hiring temporary medical staff.

“A major reason for our success is that we are open and transparent in our dealings with hospitals, sharing information on profit margins, bill rates and KPIs.”
