How you can help this summer


The summer months bring our trusts a new set of challenges.Whilst the pressures of winter have long since disappeared, many substantive staff take a well-deserved break and junior doctors begin a new rotation, meaning we have lots of vacancies.

Meet our locums


At just 5 years old Gabriela knew she wanted to be a doctor. Growing up with a seriously ill parent made her acutely aware of the impact a doctor has on the lives of patients, and their families. She feels proud to have achieved this and be able work for the NHS, an organisation where everyone is treated equally. Working flexibly through Doctors Direct has given Gabriela the support she requires to be more present at home for her family. Read the rest of her story here.
