An Edinburgh-based international medical recruitment specialist has won a coveted place on a UK-wide NHS recruitment framework.

Head Medical, which has been placing international medical professionals for more than a decade, has secured its own spot on the Health Trust Europe (HTE) Framework for Permanent Recruitment Solutions for International Healthcare Workers.

As a result, the group will have the opportunity to place healthcare workers, including Nurses, Doctors and AHPs from across the globe to NHS bodies in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The specialist fought off competition thanks to its commitment to quality of service and compliance – for which it achieved the maximum possible score during the tender process.

Jim Godsal, Managing Director of Head Medical, said: “We’re proud to have been accepted onto this nationwide framework. It is testament to the hard work and expertise of our team, all of whom have an exceptional knowledge of international recruitment in the medical field.

“We have worked tirelessly over the years to build a solid reputation based on our combined expertise, high standards of client service and our unique offering across the relocation process. It’s wonderful to see our commitment to quality and compliance recognised by Health Trust Europe.

“Over the years we have placed hundreds of candidates with the NHS, and we look forward to building on that foundation going forward.”

Head Medical has a team of more than 20 experienced specialist recruiters working with clients across the globe to place hospital doctor, nurse and GP candidates into a range of permanent and contract roles, from training and consultant positions to clinical director and GP partner.

Its unique service includes assistance from a dedicated registration team to help with medical registrations and visa applications, ensuring the smoothest possible relocation process.



Head Medical was established in 2008, originally focusing on the recruitment of doctors for international clients in countries like Australia, New Zealand, Middle East, Canada and the Caribbean. In 2015 a UK division bringing doctors from around the globe into the UK, was set up.

Head Medical is part of Taranata Group, alongside four other talent brands.
