Aren’t you simply taking doctors away from the NHS?

We believe in opportunity, choice and informed decision making. Many doctors leave the profession oblivious to the limitless options available to them, having been unable to access adequate unbiased support in doing so. We don’t ‘poach’ doctors or co-erce them in any manner. Many find us because we provide a service they are already looking for – resources, career opportunities and community. Medicine is changing; career options are endless and can be achieved in parallel – whether doctors utilise their medical skills 1 day of the week or 7 days of the week!

Notably, our Medical Director still works full time for the NHS.


Which organisations do you work with?

Organisations providing services for doctors and/or recruiting doctors – either as medics or particularly interested in their transferrable skills. Our sectors include Overseas, Entrepreneur, Diversifying, Wellbeing, and Non-Medical. We get especially excited about doctor led organisations, so please get in touch!


We are your competitors!

We believe less in ‘competitors’ and more in potential collaborators. All businesses have different strengths and weaknesses and we are just as keen to work with similar organisations with the objective to achieve our greater agenda; providing a resource and community focusing on alternative careers for doctors. The power of diversity should not be ignored, so get in touch!


Do you run any events outside London?

At present we are not running events outside London (we have a small operational team), however we purposefully look to do so in the future. Our objective is to find enthusiastic individuals around the company who will look to help us take Medic Footprints events nationally.
