About Locum’s Nest

Locum’s Nest, the workforce technology company listed in The Telegraph’s “Top 5 ideas to save the NHS” is committed to empowering all NHS workers through its flexible working software solutions.

With the aim to solve the NHS staffing crisis, the Locum’s Nest mobile and web apps connect 60,000 healthcare professionals to vacant work in the NHS. 

Founded by two junior doctors in 2015, and carrying across the deeply rooted values of transparency, honesty and a sharp focus on patient care, Nick and Ahmed embarked on building a fantastic team of professionals, who deeply cared about our health service. Driven by the belief that silo working within the NHS was not the way forward, Locum’s Nest has unlocked the potential for tech-led workforce management across the NHS.

Since launched, our technology has matched nearly 1 million healthcare professionals to vacant shifts in hospitals and GP practices, saving our health service millions of pounds in the process by bypassing expensive recruitment agencies. Recently recognised by the Financial Times as one of Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies, Locum’s Nest featured for the first time on the FT1000 list and ranked 46th across all categories, 15th in the Technology category and 14th amongst UK businesses.

With our vision to increase transparency and collaboration between NHS organisations, increase engagement and retention of NHS workers, as well as improve care outcomes, Locum’s Nest pioneered the first NHS digital collaborative staff bank – an ever-growing number of NHS hospitals sharing their pool of workers.
