About Doctors Direct

 

Doctors Direct launched in 2016 as part of NHS Professionals. Doctors Direct is wholly owned by the Department of Health; and is a leading provider of locum services to the NHS. We have partner NHS Trusts across the country and place doctors of all grades and specialities in roles.

Our aim

 

Support NHS Trusts across the UK with quality, cost effective locum cover

 

Care for our patients and their families with first class doctors.

 

Doctors Direct are an alternative to expensive private agencies, despite offering the same competitive rates we do not charge the expensive agency fees. Profits we make go directly back into the NHS, meaning locum shifts worked through us support your local trust and save money for the NHS.

 

Our dedicated Doctors Direct team are here to help 24/7 365 days a year. You can call Doctors Direct on 03330 143 652. Please note, this number will only be able to help you with questions relating to our Doctors Direct service.

There was never any one thing that drew Alex to study medicine, just something that drew him to it, and a love for it that is compounded by a supportive team right from his very first day.

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.
