Remedium Partners – a consultancy which specialises in the recruitment of overseas permanent doctors to ease the NHS’ reliance on agency locums – has been named Recruitment Services Provider of the Year at the 2019 HSJ Partnership Awards. The award was given in recognition of the company’s innovative overseas recruitment service, partnering with several NHS Trusts.

Winners of these prestigious awards – which showcase the most effective partnerships with the NHS – were announced at an exclusive black-tie event in London last night.

Commenting on the exciting news, Philip Braham, Co-Founder of Remedium Partners, said:

“Winning this award truly demonstrates the commitment and hard work that everyone at Remedium puts in to developing strategic partnerships with the NHS. Our overseas recruitment trips with Trusts in 2018 and 2019 have helped source highly skilled doctors at a time when shortages and budget constraints make attracting these individuals increasingly difficult. As we continue to work closely with the NHS, we are helping to reduce the costly reliance on agency locums while also assisting with the relocation of overseas doctors to implement a long-term solution to the on-going shortage of doctors in the UK.”

Talking about Remedium’s entry, the judging panel, which consisted of NHS leaders from across the industry, said: “‘The judges felt that sustainable benefits were achieved resulting from an excellent process in recruiting doctors. Developing best practice from previous experience, there was demonstrable evidence and support from previous clients.’ 

David Green, Co-Founder of Remedium Partners, added: “Being named as Recruitment Service Provider of the Year is fantastic recognition of the overseas work we do, developing meaningful, long lasting relationships with international doctors and connecting them with UK Trusts. The simple fact that,to date, we have helped the NHS save over £100 million shows that this innovative approach works and we look forward to partnering with more Trusts in the coming months.”

As a result of winning this award, Remedium is now also automatically selected as finalists for the HSJ Partnership of the Year category at the main HSJ Awards in November, the biggest awards night in the UK health sector.
