Meet the Team – Martin Merrick

LinkedIn ShareShare

In our most recent blog we introduced Karen Diamond, one of the two new members of our expanding UK Recruitment Team. This time around it's Martin Merrick's turn in the spotlight...

I was born and raised in central Scotland, more accurately the ancient capital of Scotland, Dunfermline. Over the years I have had the opportunity to relocate but the pull of Scotland has always been too great, with some of the best scenery in the world and the opportunity in the winter months to get onto my snowboard.

I’m delighted to join the UK Recruitment Team here at Head Medical, where I'll be supplying locum, salaried and GP Partners for positions all across the country. During my short time with the business it has become apparent that there is a national shortage of GPs in the UK, and as a business we aim to fill this gap by assisting international doctors with their registration from outside the UK, in addition to supporting the many talented Doctors already on our shores in finding salaried and locum work.

I am currently working on a number of roles, including recruiting a salaried GP to join a thriving practice in Sussex, England. This is an opportunity for someone either in the area, nationally or internationally to come in and help drive the practice forward.

Also, I am actively looking for a number of GPs to join a range of practices on the West Coast of Wales in the stunning Hywel Dda region. There are also a number of GP locum positions available throughout the West / Highlands of Scotland with the most urgent being in Glasgow between the 4th–29th of July.
