Corrigan’s Door supplies locum doctors to over 96% of private hospitals in London and nationally to the NHS as a Framework Agency on the HealthTrust Europe, London Procurement Partnership and Collaborative Procurement Partnership NHS Frameworks.

Corrigan's Door was established in 1996 and has long standing and close working relationships with the majority of private healthcare providers in the UK.  This means that we are asked to fill assignments and permanent placements at private hospitals that other agencies are simply never offered, allowing us to offer our doctors the best and largest selection of private hospital assignments.

If you are thinking of taking some time out of the NHS to save a deposit for a new home, pay off your student loans, save up for your engagement ring, wedding or a year of travel we can fast track your registration and get you working in well paid private hospital locum assignments within days.  

Working in private hospitals offers the opportunity to work alongside top UK Consultants and gain experience in new procedures not practiced in the NHS or those which are rarely available due to cost restrictions.  Doctors working in private hospitals are appreciated and treated with respect.  Private patients are not going to be violent or abusive or show up drunk in the middle of the night with a nasty injury after being in a fight! It is definitely worth trying this option if you are becomming disillusioned with NHS working conditions, long working hours for poor remuneration and a general lack of appreciation for your hard work.

Alternatively, if you are in a substantive NHS post and would like to cover adhoc shifts to pay for private school fees, a longhaul family holiday or just to improve your standard of living, if you keep us updated on which dates you are free to work we will make sure you hit your earning target each month.

Whether you would like to work for us full time or fit adhoc shifts around your permanent post or studies, if you tell us how much you would like to earn and how many shifts you would like to cover each month we will do our utmost to make it happen.  We can make sure you achieve the best rates and utilise your free time to full effect.

We have recently been awarded 3 private hospital contracts to supply full annual cover in private Oncology and Haematology Units in London.  If you are a doctor with Oncology, Haematology, Acute Medicine, Palliative Medicine or Elderly Care experience, please call and ask to speak to Frank Kelly or Suzanna Nuthall for full details.  The working conditions and pay rates are excellent.  You have your own dedicated on-call room with ensuite bathroom and cable TV whilst on duty.  The chance to experience stem cell procedures and the latest treatment techniques.  These private units have invested a fortune in the latest equipmen, including the CyberKnife.

The private hospitals we work for also require doctors with experience in Adult ICU, PICU and A&E experience.  If you have experience in any of these specialties, please call for full details. 

We have also been asked by another private healthcare group to recruit a large number of private GPs for private GP Practices which are going to opening all over London and the Home Counties over the next 3 months.  Much higher salaries are being offered than NHS GPs earn, plus private healthcare and generous pension schemes.  

We consider our doctors to be extended business partners rather than just another name on a database, which means you are guaranteed a personal service every time.  If you are fed up with the call centre ethos of your current agency, give us a call and experience the difference.
