Locum opportunities available

Doctors Direct are part of NHS Professionals and owned by the Department of Health and Social Care, which means that we are part of the NHS family and sets us apart from locum agencies. Saving money and providing only the highest quality locum cover to our partner Trusts is at the very heart of what we do.

We are looking for a doctor dedicated to supporting a Trust who are constantly looking for new ways to make patients, and their organisation, better. Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust provides a full range of mental health and learning disability services for people of all ages at over 60 locations.

The Trust has a growing Research & Innovation team completely dedicated to finding service users who could benefit from current studies. Above all, community is at the heart of everything the Trust does – and it works closely with local people at every opportunity, whether that’s by promoting self-care within the home or holding events which raise awareness of health issues.
