Forest leads the way for locums.

In a bid to capture more of the healthcare market, forest has launched forest locums. With industry-leading USPs, forest locums is set to expand fast. Group MD, Jovan Pavlicevic commented:

We’re really proud of our specialist locums umbrella. This strengthens our position by offering something completely unique, tailored for locum doctors and nurses. Agencies supplying the NHS will be aware of the complexities surrounding VAT on this supply. We have this element covered, and to add a huge USP we’ve taken the step of adding full medical malpractice insurance. This is an area that most umbrellas are gambling with, since the RCN revoked coverage for its members last year, to avoid subsidising under performing employers. Forest has picked up the gauntlet and is now leading the way in supplying medical agencies.
