AGM Exhibition

We are pleased to have attended the AGM conference, which was one of the biggest doctor events in the UK. During this event, we registered over 3,000 new doctors looking for locum work across the UK. During the day, we were giving out loads of goodie bags to everyone who registered with us as well as free massages to doctors who came to our stand. Having attended several conferences in the past this was one of our most successful events that we attended and in the future, we aim to register even more doctors.

The greatest part of the event was being able to meet some of the doctors that we currently work with and meet doctors that we will work with in the future. This event was an excellent opportunity for us to strengthen current relationships and build new ones.

If we didn’t get to see you at the Acute and General Medicine (AGM) conference, please don’t hesitate to call us on 020 8969 9915 or via email at doctors@medecho.com or register on our website and we will get back to with all the information that you need.
