Karen, a locum worked at SMC throughout April and first few weeks in May. Karen was very friendly, efficient and fitted in with the practice easily. I would definitely use Karen (and Primary Locums) again and recommend her/them to any colleagues / neighbouring practices.

I have been with Primary Locums for over 3 yrs now . I must say they are simply the best Locum agency by far. They are very friendly, professional and competent at their job. To be able to receive an individualised support is exceptional. I would 200% recommend them to any medical professional looking for Locum work. Thank you Louise, Elaine and Hayley.
