Innovation: Locum’s Nest
Ahmed is a qualified doctor previously working at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford. He graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2014 before accepting his first medical post at St. Helier Hospital, London where he met his colleague and co-founder, Nick. Nick and Ahmed stood back from front-line medicine in 2016 and took the bold move to start Locum’s Nest. Carrying across the deeply rooted values of transparency, honesty and a focus on patient care, they embarked on a mission to solve the NHS staffing crisis by empowering clinicians and NHS staff alike. Over £60m has been saved in the NHS during the platform’s first 3 years of partnership; the ambition of saving £1bn by 2022 is well underway.
