Deenu Patel, managing director at ID Medical said, “As a leading supplier across the majority of the region since 2008 with a number of exclusive supply agreements, this new contract now means that other NHS Trusts including those on the South East coast will also benefit from our unrivalled capacity to supply medical locums.

“It is more important now than ever to recognise the complexities of the NHS and implement sustainable solutions to help its future. Working alongside the NHS Commercial Alliance through effective procurement we will help to ensure a superior quality of patient care is maintained whilst certifying a true return on investment on public service expenditure.

“We are delighted to be placed on the contract. It has further reinforced our supplier of choice status within the locum healthcare market.”
