The initial focus was locum Doctors to the NHS, but also building out a substantive capability beyond locum as well as additional propositions for the private health care market. For a number of reasons this period of my career really made its mark on me and, consequently, I have always wanted to return to medical recruitment. Remedium offers the perfect opportunity, a clear mission statement, a culture and value proposition that resonates, a fantastic brand with inspirational & supportive leadership, a strong track record, and a highly impressive workforce with deep market expertise with a desire to evolve.
