She has helped me immensely throughout my transition from a training doctor to a locum doctor.

I have now worked with Sandra for a few months and I can say with confidence that she is a friendly and competent individual who conducts herself professionally in every aspect of her work. She has helped me immensely throughout my transition from a training doctor to a locum doctor. She was also very supportive when I informed her about my apprehensions around doing my first OOH's shifts and made sure I was introduced to the service with the right support. She is easily approachable and always available if i have any queries and is one of the reasons I feel comfortable in dealing with Coben for locum work.

Very supportive during the registration period helping to make it as easy as possible.

I have worked with Sandra at Coben for about 3 years now. She was very supportive during the registration period helping to make it as easy as possible. Sandra goes out of her way to liaise with clients as quickly as possible and is very quick to reply to any communication and resolve any issues encountered. She doesn’t bombard me with lots of irrelevant information or requests to work in unsuitable places and ensures invoicing and payments are made efficiently. I would rate her as the best consultant that I have worked with and would have no hesitation to recommend working with both Coben and Sandra.
