Our Industries of Expertise


Over the years we have managed to build up a strong team of Locum Pharmacists spread across the country. We have gained quality working relationships with the companies we work with and pride ourselves in being a preferred supplier to many of them. Due to the strong inter-company bonds between us we are always able to provide cover to many different styles of pharmacy including community, hospital and hub pharmacies. Due to the flexibility in the vast variety of pharmacy work that is exclusively available to us we are always able to meet both locum and companies’ requirements. We have a designated team of Pharmacist coordinators dealing with their own section of the country meaning all communication goes to the right place to give the best results possible.
