Medical Staffing is one of the leading medical recruitment agencies in the UK dedicated to the provision of temporary nurses, locum GPs and permanent medical staff of all grades and specialities to the Primary Care sector. We work with clients nationally, many of which recruit exclusively through us.

In recognition of the quality of our services, we have been granted the Agency of the Year award, for the fourth year running, at the General Practice Awards.

Staffing Agency of the Year  – General Practice Awards 2017.   “After winning at the General Practice Awards 2014 and 2015, 2016

Medical Staffing has been named Agency of the Year 2017 by the General Practice Awards.

Shortlisted as finalists in 2013, we won the award in 2014, 2015, 2016 and have once again been awarded this accolade for 2017.

This award is given to an agency that demonstrates having provided outstanding service to supplying GPs and Nurses. It also recognises and highlights our commitment to supplying high quality staff throughout the year.

The panel of 32 judges consisted of a mixture of clinicians and senior representatives from NHS England and the healthcare sector.

The work ethic that supported us in winning the award for the second year running included:

  • Supporting the provision of vital services provided to patients by our clients 24/7 365 days a year
  • Ensuring our candidates are partnered in their career as a key part of our services to them
  • Repeated ability to provide GPs and Nurses to clients where other suppliers have failed to do so
  • 2.2m patient consultations carried out in 2016


“We often need replacement doctors at short notice and unsociable hours, and the response we receive whenever we ring is always first class.”

“As a not for profit Social Enterprise we are focused on putting our profits back into the services which we provide to our patients. With this in mind, the locum rates which Medical Staffing provides is an additional reason why we like to use them.”

“Completing my Nurse Prescribing course, I worked as a Practice Nurse but did not feel confident taking shifts as an independent prescriber. I raised my concerns [with Medical Staffing]. In no time at all, shadow shifts for me had been arranged as a Prescriber which I found immensely beneficial to my personal development providing me with the skills and support I required.”
