Anyone who keeps in touch with recruitment agencies would notice that recruiters come and go… I have stayed since 2007, working solely with GPs who are European graduates. Many of them made me extremely proud to be able to know them, to assist them on their way to and within the NHS and represent them to employers. It is a life-changing choice that European Doctors make, and I always felt grateful for their trust in me. The dedication and potential of European GPs and Hospital Doctors was the background for Verumed to be established.“
