Bluestones Medical appoints new MD

This week marks an important milestone for the Bluestones Medical business as Darren Logue joins as its new Managing Director. Darren joins Bluestones Medical from Randstad, where he’s spent the last 9 years establishing a high-performing, multi-million pound nursing and healthcare division.

On joining Bluestones Medical, Darren said:

As a well-established business with an excellent reputation in the market, strong framework presence and a national footprint – it wasn’t a difficult choice to take on this new role. I’m looking forward to getting to know the team and helping the business continue to evolve in to the market-leading force I know it can be.

Bluestones Medical is an elite brand within the Bluestones Investment Group’s portfolio of recruitment companies. The Group’s Divisional CEO, Trish Stratford commented:

This appointment is a clear indication of our intention to both support and grow our medical recruitment business. With Darren’s guidance we will continue to be customer-focused, expand into new geographies and develop new business streams.

His background and professional experience speaks for itself, but importantly for me, it’s also well-balanced with his personability and can-do attitude – and I’m excited to see where we can take the business.

Darren continued,

Clearly we’re living through challenging times with the COVID-19 outbreak affecting all areas of our lives. The NHS and other healthcare providers are facing exceptional challenges and are demonstrating their inherent value every day through the work they do.

Bluestones Medical is here too, actively working to support the national healthcare effort and although I’m taking on this new role now, I’m already encouraged by the passion our teams are demonstrating and the essential work they’re undertaking.

Bluestones Medical operates from two regional hubs and is a framework provider to the NHS in England and Wales. The business specialises in finding roles for nurses, theatre staff and healthcare professionals across both the public and private sector.
