About us

LocumPA was set up to provide a better way of working for PAs in 2013 and is the biggest employer of PAs in the UK.

Through the use of technology and quality service provision by excellent PAs we have become an integral part of our clients' healthcare provision services. 

While some people may consider us an agency,  we are not an agency!

We are a medical service provider specialising in the Physician Associate profession. In fact, at the time of writing around 95% of our workers are salaried (PAYE), but the option of locuming is there too. 

What is working with LocumPA Ltd like?

Here are some of the benefits of working with us:


Locuming provides a flexible way of working in different environments often in shift patterns that allow you to choose your own hours.

Better work life balance

Loucming is seen as providing a better work life balance as the flexibility allows you to look after yourself as well as your patients.

Better Rates

As we are PAs we understand the real value of Physician Associates. That is why we pay the best salaries in the UK to experienced PAs.

Weekly pay

No one wants to wait a whole month to get paid! We didnt like this concept so decided to put a system in place where you work one week and then get paid the next!

Member Benefits

Join the largest cohort of PAs in the UK with access to the best employment opportunies. You will also gain access to our members advice forum.

Enhance your CV

Locuming provides and excellent oportunity to add experience to your CV. It gives you the oportunity to see how different work places operate and meet new patients and work colleagues. This allows you to work how PAs should be working; flexible and always learning.

Extra Shifts

Can you only find part time salaried work? or are you saving up for a house or special occasion? Locuming allows you to take on extra work for a fixed period of time to achive your short or long term goals.

Customised CPD

LocumPA offers customised CPD to improve the quality of medical service provision. We also often advertise CPD that we think is particulary beneficial for PAs.

Indemnity Cover

We have customised indemnity cover for all PAs that work for us at any of our sites. You must be on the MVR though.

Run and owned by PAs

LocumPA Lts was set up in 2013 by a St Georges University Physician Associate graduate Joseph Ormerod. Alex Reynolds joined in 2017 another St Geroges Graduate to look after secondary care. As we are both Physycian Associates we are passionate about the profession.
