Our members play a key role in helping the NHS continue to deliver world-class care. Working through Doctors Direct enables our members to support NHS colleagues and Trusts manage their capacity during peak times. Profits we make go directly back into the NHS, meaning locum shifts worked through us help support your local Trust whilst saving money for the NHS.
