Working as a Locum GP with Head Medical

If working in the same setting day in day out is not for you, then locum work can provide a great way to enhance your career in general practice. Getting out and seeing different parts of the UK, for example working in rural Scotland with breath-taking scenery at your (practice) doorstep, it can also make for a great work/life balance.

We can help you find locum jobs in the UK and beyond. We have recently recruited for roles in Kazakhstan, the Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, the Caribbean and a remote island in the South Atlantic Ocean.

But don’t just take our word for it - this is what our Locum GPs have said about working with us:

Nicky has been fantastic and I couldn’t fault the service I have had with Head Medical. There was minimal initial paperwork to register which was all processed very quickly and after completing a job I was paid very quickly. I also appreciated the fact that I wasn’t bombarded with phone calls/e-mails etc which I have often found to be the case with different agencies. Nicky is very efficient but also very friendly and easy to chat to meaning that it has been a very enjoyable experience so far working with Head Medical and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Nicky Mcloughlin at Head Medical has been exceptional in providing guidance and support to re-enter the freelance world of medicine and I have been impressed by the tremendous range of work offered; both internationally and within the UK.

Nicky is the epitome of friendly efficiency and I would highly recommend Nicky and Head Medical as a first class Medical Locum Agency.
