“I have worked with A&E Agency for 12 months. During this time they have provided the Gerontology Service at University Hospital Coventry and Warwick with an efficient and effective service for the provision of registered medical practitioners on an agency/locum basis.
They understand the needs of the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust and accurately assesses the required capabilities of each of the medical practitioners they provide against those offered by each individual doctor.
The service they provide is outstanding. They go above and beyond any other agents that I have worked with. They are always contactable and will always do their best to deliver what the service needs, even at short notice and out of normal working hours.
I would highly recommend the quality and responsive service provided by A&E Agency for the provision of registered medical practitioners.”
Assistant Group Manager
“I am one of three Managers who manage Women & Children’s here at the PRUH under Kings. My chief role is locum staffing for Paediatrics, and I have now been given the responsibility of locum staffing for the Obs & Gynae team. I have worked with them since June 2015 and they have always gone over and above to source locums shifts for my department. A&E Agency have always managed to source reliable doctors who we are contented with.
I would confirm that 90% of shifts are always covered by A&E Agency. CVs are sent promptly and always with the correct data. Their professionalism is outstanding from the manner they answer the phone, to liaising for shift times and obtaining doctor’s mobile numbers, to which I know they are reluctant to supply.
I rely greatly on A&E Agency when sourcing locums as they make my job easier.”
Princess Royal University Hospital
“As a Rota Coordinator for Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust, I have been working with A&E Agency for over 4 years and have found them to be one of the most professional, efficient and reliable of locum agencies.
The A&E Agency does an excellent job and communicates very effectively. They help us to cover our ad-hoc on-call shifts and ongoing locum positions.
I'm happy to recommend the services of A&E Agency.”
Rota Coordinator – Medicine, A&E, Orthopaedics
Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust
“I have had the absolute pleasure of working with the Medicine team at A&E Agency for a period of 18 months and during this time they have worked tirelessly to provide the team at the Alexandra Hospital with locum support. The doctors (at consultant, SpR and SHO level) who have been supplied as part of this process have been of a high calibre, invariably located within the Midlands area. Often these requirements have been met on a short notice basis. The doctors booked through A&E Agency continue to return to help at the hospital on a regular basis and when required, longer-term bookings are still being renewed on an ongoing basis.
The team are responsive, effective and supportive. I am readily kept informed in terms of progress and, on the rare occasions when the agency have not been able to assist, I have been notified of this in a timely manner. I have, without exception, found the team to be approachable, professional, excellent communicators with a can-do attitude, proactive and swift to act when there are situations where assistance in sourcing a locum doctor is required on an urgent basis. The service is provided with good humour, honesty, integrity and efficiency, with any problems being addressed and resolved without detriment to either party. If the manager is unavailable for any reason, then support has been provided to an equally high standard.
The administrative/support team within the agency also operates in the same efficient and responsive manner.”
