Quality locum doctors
Quickly filling your requirements – Experts in locum recruitment
Holt Doctors has a large Bank of over 16,000 doctors across all grades and specialties. Specialist divisions have been created to focus on hard to fill grades and specialties, including A&E, Paediatrics, Anaesthetics, Psychiatry, Acute Medicine and GPs, all with ongoing recruitment programmes to build capacity.
In addition, working with our sub-contractors (40 plus - covering mainstream and niche agencies) also gives us access to the majority of active locum doctors in the UK. This puts us in an excellent position to quickly fill a large number of bookings at your organisation.
Supporting you 24/7 – Out-of-hours service
We provide a full service 24 hours per day 365 days of the year – with the same contact number, same email address and same method to add jobs whatever time of day to ensure consistency of service.
Main office hours:
- 8:00am to 9:00pm Monday to Friday
- 8:00pm to 4:00pm weekends and Bank Holidays
Our experienced out of hours team ensure continuous service outside of these times.
Focus on quality and compliance
Quality remains at the heart of our service – our systems and processes are accredited to ISO 9001 and in the recent Neuven audits on behalf of HTE and LPP we achieved platinum status for both frameworks.
Our Training and Compliance Manager is ISO 9001 Lead Auditor IRCA qualified and is supported by a large in-house team – ensuring robust and effective quality assurance processes in order to provide you with framework compliant doctors, including registration, placement, appraisals and revalidation of doctors. As an approved designated body, our Responsible Officer ensures doctors are supported and reviewed effectively on an ongoing basis. For our managed services, our ISO auditor also gives you confidence in the compliance of our numerous sub-contractors.
Our acceptance rate for proposed locum doctors is approximately one in one (for sole contracts). All locum candidates undertake a detailed face-to-face interview and document check, plus an English language and comprehension assessment.
Our IT recruitment platform LMS is designed to automatically match the most appropriate candidates to your vacancies and also process their applications quickly and compliantly.
LMS automatically blocks agency workers from being forwarded without full compliance documentation. The system carries out automatic GMC checks for each doctor and our recruiters have instant visibility for any compliance documents which may be due for renewal through a traffic light system within LMS and email alerts.
We don’t cherry pick as an agency the jobs we watch - 70% plus of the vacancies we fill are shift based as we recognise these are important to fill and cause the majority of your workload.
