The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s Accident and Emergency provides emergency service to the 252,000 residents of Rotherham, as well as those further afield. The department itself sees approximately 74,000 patients a year, almost 210 a day. As part of its master vendor contract with the Trust, HCL Doctors is the first port of call for all locum shifts available in the A&E department, offering our doctors access before anyone else.
One of our doctors, an SPR who has worked at the Trust for two or three days a week for two years, gives us a small snapshot of what working as a locum in the A&E department is like.
“Having worked regularly at the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust over the last couple of years, I have come to know the Trust and the A&E department well. AS a full-time locum, I have worked at several Trusts and what stands out about Rotherham is the friendliness of the other staff in the A&E. The whole team is very supportive and nice to work with. The consultants in the department are helpful and willing to help you with your development, and there is a varied working environment. I feel that the Rotherham’s A&E department is just the right size A&E to work in as a locum; not huge, but big enough to keep your skills up to date and offer variety in your day-to-day work.
My HCL recruitment consultant is also very helpful and supportive; I really enjoy working with her. She knows where I like to work and I get lot of work with her.”
