  • Julie, I would like to thank you for all of the help you given me this year. Locum work can sometimes be a little trying and surprising. All of the placements that you have found for me this year have been fantastic. The jobs have been at high quality practices with very friendly staff. I would happily recommend Northern Locum Agency to other locums. Thanks
