“The coolest thing about locuming is it allowed me to just enjoy the job again”

Thursday, October 7, 2021

As part of our current campaign, we have been discussing real life stories with the doctors at the heart of the locum world. In recent years, the motivation and drive behind working as a locum has shifted from solely a financial incentive to working towards achieving your goals and crafting your career through non-traditional routes.

We have heard from A&E Agency doctors who have used the time and flexibility available whilst working as a locum doctor to sit exams and study part-time postgraduate courses to support further career progression. Others have proven that the placements provided as a locum doctor can give the confidence and experience to secure better opportunities when you return to training. You can catch up on those episodes here.

In our latest instalment, we talk to Dr Prempeh who started working with us in 2016 upon completing core medical training. From the valuable lessons learned as a locum, to the accomplishments and qualifications achieved during this time, see how you really can #DoItYouWay.


If any of the above resonated with you and you would like to do things on your own terms, please contact us here so we can discuss what opportunities are available to make locum work, work for you. You can also email us at info@accident-emergency.co.uk and we will be happy to help.
