How it works
Our HSJ award-winning proposition allows clients to visit overseas locations with Remedium in order to assess international clinicians directly at source, helping them to overcome the challenge of recruiting and retaining doctors, especially in shortage occupations.
Optional Exemption Route
When undertaking an international project with Remedium, many of our clients opt for our exemption route.
This means that clients can conduct a GMC-approved English language competency assessment during the interview process, so that clinicians are exempt from taking IELTS or OET.

Testimonials from our successful international project clients:
“This four day trip, which was fully managed and organised by Remedium, resulted in us recruiting 14 doctors to our ED and Acute Med departments and in turn will reduce our locum spend by over a million pounds a year going forward.”
COO - Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust
“The trust recently engaged with Remedium for a targeted recruitment drive in India. It cannot be underestimated the work involved in making the experience in India a successful one. It requires co-operation at all levels and I am very pleased to say this was apparent. The end result was the trust making an offer of employment to 14 doctors, which was a fantastic achievement.”
Head of Medical Workforce - Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust
“The doctors interviewed proved to have an excellent command of English and a wide breadth of appropriate knowledge. I am confident that they will prove to be valuable assets to our ED.”
Dr. Bill Bailey
Clinical Director Emergency Medicine - Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
"The background work they did in terms of quality and competency of doctors was commendable, and the efficiency with which they facilitated the interviews and paperwork regarding GMC registration was extremely slick.”

Don’t use locum doctors for routine services
There will always be a need for locum doctors. However, many in the NHS are unnecessarily being used for routine services. This is costly and damaging to patient care.
MPs warn of NHS staff burnout “emergency” which risks the future of the health service
This week, the Government released a highly critical report which said that healthcare staff were burnt out due to a shortage of staff. As the leading voice on the clinical workforce shortages facing our NHS, Remedium wholly support this report.
Workforce planning is key to post-Covid NHS doctor retention
