Our Locum Doctors
As a practice, we try to use locum doctors only where absolutely necessary – for instance to allow our GP’s to be involved with major development work outside of the practice for the wider community. We also try to use the same locums wherever possible to assist with continuity of care. They are a much needed and welcome part of our team.
