About Us

Looking for a change in career direction? Welcome to Prescribe Medical…

As a trainee doctor working in the NHS, you have probably soldiered on from right the start of medical school to get where you want to be. It’s been tough, tiring and you’ve probably sacrificed countless birthdays, Christmases, Valentine’s days, Mother’s days, Father’s Day etc. The list goes on.

The team at Prescribe Medical are here to give you a well-earned break. We offer work to junior doctors, consultants and GPs in private healthcare and in the NHS which is more flexible, well paid and usually less “work-intensive”. That’s why we have doctors who have chosen to work with us to supplement their regular income by doing evening and weekend shifts. Some of our doctors want to venture out and start a new business, whilst still working with us. The scope is endless.

What makes us different

There are probably more than a hundred good locum companies in the UK. Fact. There are pros and cons to all companies and you have to do all the relevant research to make sure it’s the right one for you. You need to think about the rate of pay, availability of work, location of work, whether you can be a private limited company and what other services are provided.

Prescribe Medical offers their doctors a better than average rate of pay, which means our margins are significantly smaller than other companies. We would rather have 20 doctors who are happy with us, than 50 unhappy doctors. We have great availability of work. If you give us enough time, we can find work that is in a location closer to you. We can help you set up as a private limited company and recommend accountants to manage your finances.

Our promise to you

Prescribe Medical looks after their doctors. We can help you with CPD points, discuss appraisals and revalidation. Supporting doctors through difficult times is important. We can talk to you about your individual development plan, help you participate in professional development opportunities and support requests for flexible work arrangements. If you have a problem or you just have questions, just ask us – we are happy to help. We will also pay you on time, every time.

Why not take the next step and join our developing team? We won’t let you down. That’s our promise.
