I was not interested in any new opportunities until Unite Medical contacted me. Their comfortable and engaging communication style enabled me to consider another opportunity I'm glad to have taken up. I am now settled in a job where I'm very happy.

I have retired from the NHS and was seeking occasional locum work. Having not worked as a locum for 30 years, I initially found the world of agencies difficult to navigate but Unite Medical helped to simplify the whole process and the advisor assigned to me has always been very supportive and full of good advice.

Dr. E

I cannot ask for better colleagues to deal with. Unite Medical are helpful, courteous and professional.

Dr. O

Unite Medical are professional yet approachable, very efficient and provide an excellent service.

Dr. S

I have worked for loads of locum agencies in the last 20 years of my medical career but Unite Medical is the best agency I've worked for. Their support service and pay rates are unique, and I wouldn't ever work for another agency again.

Dr. M

Unite Medical is probably the best agency I've ever worked with. Professional and helpful, small in size but big in performance.

Dr. V

When working with Unite Medical there is a focus on making you feel valued in every respect. Unite Medical monitor compliance and facilitate updates of requirements with little disruption to agency staff and support with appraisals and training. Working with Unite is a rewarding experience and I would recommend them to every doctor intending to try agency working.
