With most UK hospitals now experiencing a doctor shortage, there is a growing need for the NHS to recruit quality talent from overseas. However, after securing work here, many of these valued professionals come up against challenges before they arrive. These include finding a home in a suitable location, arranging schooling for their children and setting up bank accounts.
In response to this, leading medical recruitment consultancy Remedium Partners is supporting the doctors it places into the NHS with the launch of Red Carpet by Remedium, a premium relocation, accommodation and information service. Working in partnership with dynamic platform provider Benivo, the Red Carpet service offers doctors a complete online relocation solution, supplying everything from rental and property sourcing across the UK, to finance arrangements, local property market insights and education and schooling support for families. In addition, each doctor receives details of relevant social and local insights, scam and fraud protection and a personalised Welcome Box.
The service is a natural extension of Remedium’s hugely successful Care and Transition team which supports all Remedium-placed doctors in coming to the UK with key issues such as pre-employment paperwork, transportation and appointment screening.
Speaking about the new service offering, Remedium Partners co-Founders Philip Braham and David Green said:
“At Remedium, we always go the extra mile for our doctors – and Red Carpet is just the latest, innovative example of how we treat our candidates like VIPs! This fantastic portal will allow our doctors to have all aspects of their relocation at their fingertips, giving them and their families the smoothest of starts to their new life in the NHS.”
Commenting on the partnership, Benivo CEO and Founder Nitzan Yudan said:
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Remedium Partners team. We know from hearing feedback from their doctors, Trusts and recent industry recognition, that Remedium have an excellent reputation for the highest quality of candidate care. The Red Carpet platform we have developed together takes this to the next level. Red Carpet ensures that Remedium’s doctors are fully informed about every aspect of their relocation, giving them real peace of mind as they focus on the next chapter of their medical careers.”
