Focusmed24, founded in 2008 by individuals with extensive and very relevant clinical backgrounds. Combined, their experience equates to more than 40 years of working in a variety of NHS, private sector and military hospitals across England, Wales and overseas.

This unique combination of experience ensured that from day one, Focusmed24 offered a professional and dedicated service offering nothing less than the most suitable of candidates.

Several years on, Focusmed24 is now established on the supplier list to the NHS, having recently been awarded a place on the HealthTrust Europe Framework for the supply of Nursing & Care Staffing. We undertook a stringent and rigorous tendering process which started earlier on this year. Only a selected number agencies have been awarded this status, and the fact that we have been awarded this contract solidifies our position as one of the UK’s leading healthcare recruitment agencies.

Allied to this, preferred supplier status within the private sector has also been awarded by; Nuffield Health, Spire Healthcare and Ramsay Health.

This status allows access to the most sought after temporary healthcare positions across England and Wales, and ensures that candidates find their ideal working environment.

We have signed up to the UK Code of Practice and adhere to the principles of ethical recruitment for healthcare professionals.

Meet the team

Mike Rodgers

Mike set up the company in 2008. He originally qualified as an Operating Department Assistant at Leighton Hospital, Crewe in 1987. After a brief full time post in the NHS, he soon decided to sign up for one of the very few locum agencies around at that time.

He remained working for a number of agencies for almost twenty years, covering a variety of scrub, anaesthetic and recovery placements at numerous hospitals around England and Wales. This time as a locum theatre practitioner was only briefly interrupted when Mike took a full time post as Theatre Manager at a busy Manchester private hospital.

He has an unrivalled knowledge of the operating theatre environment, and therefore understands exactly which staff are required when requested for a one off shift or long term booking alike.

Katie Jones
Finance Manager

Katie has been with Focusmed24 since 2009, and has always been actively involved in the development and success of the business to where it is today. Her career started after graduating from Manchester Metropolitan University in 1998 with a degree in Business Administration.

After working as an Accounts Assistant in food production, Katie moved into Human Resources within an FMCG business as an Employee Liaison Officer and then into Industrial and Commercial recruitment. Katie had a few years away from work to raise a family. During this time she kept her hand in with a few voluntary jobs and a little self-employment.

Katie balances her work with trying to keep two teenage boys in line, running, cycling, travelling and spending her time eating, thinking or talking about food.
