GPS AND LOCUMS
Comments by Dr AW
"Working in the Princes Street Surgery was a great experience that I enjoyed tremendously. The surgery is well run with fantastic support from the nursing and admin team who take a lot of the weight off the GPs in an innovative way, and the other doctors are hard working, motivated and involved in the community (and often have a wealth of information about the patients!). I enjoyed having more respect and responsibility working in a rural practice, and encountered some very interesting patients. The conditions and severity were different from what I tend to experience in the city, and there were a number of diagnostic challenges which I really enjoyed working out. Overall this is a friendly, supportive practice and I'd heartily recommend locum posts here if you get the chance."

"The Princes Street Surgery in Thurso is a practice where I have worked regularly as a locum GP. The practice is well organised with friendly and helpful staff. Daily Nurse Triage has been very effective in managing the workload and using appointments efficiently. It is a great practice to work in."

"Having worked as a Locum for a long time, I can say that the Princes Street Surgery was one of the most enjoyable and satisfying locums I have undertaken. The practice was very well run, and clinical practice was of a very high standard. Record keeping and support/administrative staff were excellent. It is a busy practice but good organisation together with excellent patient care and education made it rewardingly so. Essentially, in addition to very good clinical practice, happy and pleasant staff contributed to a very tangible team ethic, and I would recommend the practice to locums or indeed anyone looking to take up a permanent post."

"A Locum, who had worked with you previously, told me that it is one of the best performing practices in the country. A third party has said the same to me independently. Perhaps I could add to his praise…" "The Staff are wonderful" "..very helpful and made this stranger very welcome, staff, nurses and doctors" "At most practices I work for, even the very best, the clerical ladies down tools and leave on time, but not in your practice. You are lucky to have staff with such an attitude."

"Thank you for the support and assistance during my stay as a Locum. Everyone has been very helpful and friendly despite their own busy schedule. The practice is very well organised and runs like a well oiled machine.” “If I was staying in the UK I would definitely locum again without a moment’s hesitation."

"I am just writing a short email to thank you all for employing and supporting me through a short locum spell. I found staff to be patient and helpful. You have a busy practice but I felt you all worked well together. Admin staff were all gems and the practice is lucky to have such nice staff.” “Hopefully I would be welcome back."
