Primary Care

As much or as little work you want from a market leading supplier of GPs, ANPs, ENPs, ECPs, 111 Clinicians and allied staff

Competitive pay rates, prompt weekly payments, first class customer service from your dedicated account manager and of course lots of work options for you to choose from. You may be a seasoned locum; you may be looking to take on locum work for the first time or you may be considering a new permanent post. In any case we’re here to guide, advise and develop your career.

Our large share of the primary care staffing market reflects our capabilities as a credible and reliable partner to planned & unplanned services across the UK. We hold many tier 1, sole supplier and preferred supplier staffing agreements and we are the largest provider of locum clinicians to NHS 111 contact centres in England. These relationships are a major benefit to you in terms of the volume of work available – we can secure work for you in many different types of service from general practice to urgent care to minor injuries.

We can easily book you for ad-hoc shifts when you have spare availability and we can just as easily book you for a run of advance shifts into your preferred services.
