Specialist medical recruitment agency Locum People is celebrating the New Year with an NHS Framework award to supply locum doctors and nurses to hospitals in Northern Ireland.

The award of the HSC Business Services Organisation Framework for Northern Ireland covers 35 major hospitals and all five Health and Social Care Trusts in Northern Ireland – Belfast, Northern, Southern, Southeastern and Western.

It’s the second Framework win for this year for the Milton Keynes-based agency, after being appointed to the NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership Agency’s Framework for nurses.

Says Locum People managing director Glenn Cook: “What a way to finish off 2017 and see us into the New Year! Locum People has worked exceptionally hard to help NHS and independent hospitals meet hard-to-fill staffing requirements, often at the last minute. We’re delighted that this preferred supplier award for NHS hospitals in Northern Ireland is recognition of that”.
