Celebrate your love for the NHS

We’re looking forward to reading your incredible stories of why you love working for the NHS and enjoy working flexibly through the bank with NHS Professionals or as a doctor with Doctors Direct. We also really would love to hear the fantastic compliments you have about our hard-working and dedicated doctors and bank members, who make a real difference to their Trusts.

Disclaimer for form:

NHS Professionals moderates the website, so your story, if selected, won’t appear immediately. It may not be published if it contains anything which might be misleading, illegal, offensive or libellous (saying untrue things about another person who can be identified).

Due to the high number of stories that are submitted to NHS Professionals, it is not possible to publish every single one. We will select stories that fit our criteria and suitable to share. We aim to read each story submitted.

All stories selected will be treated as a promotional piece of work for NHS Professionals. To stay safe online, we will not include any personal information such as your email address or phone number within our stories.

If you are one of the 20 chosen, we will contact you by email to request a photo to have alongside your story, and for a photographic consent for this to be completed. You do not have to give your consent.
