What our Doctors Say

Feedback and testimonials from a medical professional placed into a permanent position:

“Skilled Medical is an excellent recruitment agency for those seeking posts in the NHS. I registered with them and immediately got calls from them about my further details to help me source for an emergency medicine position. I got a job within 6 weeks. Mr Adam Collings,  my Recruitment Consultant was outstanding. He called regularly and supported me all through my interview, giving me advice and tips; my visa application, the process of my relocation from Nigeria, accommodation, and settling in the UK. I presently work in an NHS Trust in the Midlands thanks to Skilled Medical and Mr Collings.”
