Finding locum doctors shouldn’t
be a headache

Almost every NHS hospital department is currently facing challenges with vacant shifts and finding locum doctors. Traditional methods of email/telephone calls often fail and locum agencies are often a let own on price and quality.

We’re out to fix by giving departments the right toolset to quickly find and book
locum doctors, and create a more sustainable solution for our NHS.

We are not an agency
We are Abrar & Chris, best mates since 13 who came together a year ago to try and solve the complex challenges facing the NHS. With Abrar’s medical background and tech savyness and Chris’ corporate and strategic expertise we’re passionate about creating something to solve the inefficiencies of healthcare recruitment and improve the working lives of doctors. Messly is that something.
