"3 cheers for Head Medical! After 35 years working as a Doctor I took early retirement and intended to give up the mantle of medicine. But one day a little email popped into my inbox telling me of Locum GP opportunities in Wick and then Brora. Head Medical helped me through all the red tape, negotiated impressive fees, travel and accommodation and off I went. I’m now an enthusiastic Locum, working when I want to in places I choose to go. Thank you very, very much. Without you I would not have returned to this very satisfying way of working. I cannot recommend Head Medical highly enough."
Dr Alison A, Locum GP, Scotland

"My experience with Head Medical has been very positive. They are reliable, efficient, and enjoyable to speak to at any time. The job recommended was as described and appropriate for my skill set, and you feel that they will always go the extra mile for you. I would highly recommend Head Medical."
Dr Michaela M, Locum GP, Scotland
