What I like the most about Locuming with HCA Doctors is that my consultant goes beyond the duty of care to help accommodate my needs. She filters through the various opportunities that come through and hand picks the jobs that fit my criteria and circumstance. Everything is taken care of by HCA Doctors and they negotiate accommodation, travel, car hire and also remuneration directly with the hospital. They will also arrange everything accordingly if I decide to travel with my family.

I work as an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) registrar in a week on, week off arrangement, Locuming in my spare time. Over the years I have enjoyed the ability to engage in Locum Doctor work in several different ICUs and HDUs in both NSW and Canberra, safe in the knowledge that logistics such as travel and accommodation will be expertly handled by the staff at HCA Doctors. It has allowed me to focus on the business of performing my best at every location I work. The staff at HCA Doctors keep me informed regularly of appropriate shifts which are available, without making me feel pressured to work more than I feel capable to do. Working with them is extremely enjoyable and have recommended them to many of my colleagues.
