"After using the name plates, badges,
profiles, dictation memo forms and hospital admission forms for a few
days, as well as seeing some of the correspondence that the Chambers
Managers send out, I just think the whole thing looks so much more
professional than anything I have seen before. It really encourages me
to lift my game. No wonder it has been such a success. Many
congratulations to everyone involved."
Dr John Pike
“Joining Pallant was a good
professional move for me. I feel proud to be part of a robust team.
Efficient administration from the chambers managers with well designed
systems bolted in ensures high standards and feedback as well as
material for revalidation. My chambers lead is astute and supportive.
After many years as a full time principal I feel more part of a team now
than I did in 8 years in my old practice.”

'" ...have really enjoyed working with
Pallant – you have made my life very easy as a locum! I would definitely
recommend this way of working to other locums – a fantastic idea. Thank
you for all you help and support – I am very grateful!'"
Dr Richard Try 2009
"Joining Pallant made my transition
from the highly supported environment of a GP registrar, to the daunting
one of a locum, simple; it removed a great deal of worry and essentially
all the administrative hassle. I was keen to avoid the pitfall of
professional and social isolation that can accompany being a locum, and
the excellent reputation of Pallant to do this was well founded. The
benefits of meeting regularly with GPs working in the same environment,
to discuss the problems we all face and to be part of deciding how the
Chambers run, cannot be overstated.
I really enjoyed the administrative and IT support and levels of
communication within the Chambers, as well as the sense of belonging to
a professional organisation – and not a detached faceless one, but one
that offers a more personal involvement.
I would highly recommend Pallant to anyone who wants the freedom of
locuming whilst being offered plenty of opportunity to maintain their
professional standing and development."
Dr Alex Charkin 2010
