To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers. 

Holt Doctors is a medical recruitment agency specialising in the provision of medical locums and permanent doctors to NHS Trusts, GP surgeries, private healthcare providers and the Armed Forces across the UK and Channel Islands.

Once part of PHC Luton Ltd, a division of the Pinnacle Staffing Group plc, Holt Doctors was bought in June 2011 by Dr Peter Gregory and Tracy Ward, who each have over 20 years experience in medical recruitment. The company started with only a small team of five but has rapidly grown since then and now has over 90 staff members at offices across the UK and Eastern Europe. Many of those working for Holt Doctors have worked with Ward and Gregory for many years at other organisations, a reflection of the fast paced and positive working environment that they have nurtured over the years. 

Holt Doctors has gone from being an ad hoc agency supplying the NHS with locums to a progressive organisation that embraces IT technology, having developed the industry leading online recruitment platform ‘LMS’. The agency takes a ‘hands on approach’ in order to offer a high level of customer support and quickly respond to changing market demands and individual client requirements. This has resulted in the company winning several major supplier contracts at prestigious hospitals nationwide.

Tracy Ward, Managing Director, Holt Doctors said: “We are delighted to be recognised by the London Stock Exchange Group as a fast growing and forward thinking company. Our inclusion represents the hard work of all our staff in building long term client relationships and I would like to thank them for their hard work and commitment. In light of new recruitment contracts, we are always on the lookout for even more talented individuals to join our busy and friendly team.

Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said: “This report is a significant part of London Stock Exchange’s broader campaign to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and to create an entrepreneurship revolution. I’m delighted that a strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies has been created to support these inspiring businesses.”
