Welcome to Pallant Medical Chambers

We are a group of GPs who have found a better way of working - which benefits both us and the practices we work with. We remain freelance GPs but have the support of our colleagues with whom we meet regularly, as well as our experienced and friendly management team who, by taking care of all our administrative tasks, allow us to focus on the job of being great GPs.

As a surgery you can book one of us knowing that you will be booking an experienced, local, clinically well-supported GP. You pay the Pallant doctor directly and there are no booking fees. You can use our online surgery portal to access our booking form, your invoices, booked sessions and much more.

This is our model of GP locum Chambers and whether you are already a locum GP, a GP looking for a change, an established team looking for structure or a Practice looking for a great pool of GPs, we look forward to welcoming you aboard.

  • As I have got to know you guys; it’s become very evident you are a special set of people with real verve and personality – I very much value the service with the added persona and you can pass that back to the man at the top for feedback, you are my number 1 people to come to for GPs as well as having some great conversations! xx
    Mr Christian Jennings MBE - Practice Manager, Camberwell Green Surgery

  • I wish I didn't have to leave your team, it has been a great experience working with you. Hope to work with you again in the near future.
    Dr Mona Kabir - Ex-Pallanteer July 2018
  • Thanks for all you and the Pallant team have done. It's been a pleasure working with you.
    Dr Mary Izett - Ex Pallanteer May 2020
  • I have been so impressed with Pallant – the standards, governance and support through the Chambers’ structure are excellent, and I have made sure that my GP principal ex-colleagues have a better idea of how good locums really are! The bookings are really efficient and using the on-line diary and Locum8 booking system is so easy and flexible – which I like. You also gave me a brilliant induction to the system, thank you.
    Dr Sue Maccallum - Chichester Pallanteer
  • Pallant have been absolutely brilliant with helping us find locum cover. We have been delighted with the organisation and efficiency of the administration team as well as the excellent doctors they provide.
    Dr Namrata Rastogi
  • We enjoy working with Pallant locums. The admin staff are first class.
    Tracy Osborne - Practice Manager, Maywood Healthcare Centre, Bognor Regis
  • Thanks so much for all the support from Pallant over the last couple of years. I couldn’t have locumed any other way! I wish you all the best for the future... and I suspect I shall be back in a few years!
    Dr Laura Baxter - Ex Pallanteer Oct 2018
  • I love the chambers meetings. I always find it a very supportive and non-judgemental environment to discuss problems/offload and leave feeling motivated. It makes the world of locuming much less lonely. It is also such a great forum for learning! Love getting the minutes from the other chambers meetings too.
    Dr Lucy Frame - Pallanteer June 2018
  • Chambers meetings are great, as is the communication between our chambers members via email - really removes the isolation one can experience as a locum.
    Dr Maz Mwambazi - Pallanteer
  • You have all been, and continue to be, fantastic. In fact, you were life savers when I retired as a partner
    Dr Michael Crow - Pallanteer
  • "I’ve been working for Pallant continuously for the last 15 years ! I started when my children were still young and thought I’d do it for a few months to look round for a practice / sessional work but soon realised that Pallant was absolutely the best option for me to be able to combine flexibility with family life and stay happy! I can honestly say joining Pallant was the best career decision I have made in my medical career spanning 36 years ! I have enjoyed being part of the Pallant team and have found everybody so helpful and supportive. I can’t thank you all enough for making my job so much easier by taking out the stress of bookings / pension forms."
    Dr Karyn Knight - Ex Pallanteer July 2020
  • I wish to thank you for all your support during my time at Pallant Medical Chambers. I admire what you achieve in providing an excellent service to your colleagues and clients. You and your team are lovely to work with.
    ANP Rachel Priest - Ex Pallanteer December 2020
  • "Pallant Medical in the last ten years has been my virtual partnership providing comradeship, advice and expert managerial advice. The financial, appointment and Arun Chambers teams have been my constant support, and allowed me to practice at many different surgeries providing me with some of the most enjoyable times in my professional life."
    Dr Anthony Gibbon - Ex Pallanteer May 2020
  • I've been part of the Guildford Chambers for 4-5 years and I can't praise Pallant enough. When I left my partnership, I think my confidence was at a low ebb and the support of my peers in the chambers has been invaluable. I've also found the wider Pallant team to be professional, helpful and friendly at all times. Thank you all so much!"
    Dr Taylor - Ex Pallanteer March 2021
  • Having been with Pallant for many years I will miss you all and please thank all the admin staff on my behalf for their hard work that makes Pallant work so well for all of us.
    Dr Nick Doll - Chichester Chambers Feb 2019
  • Very efficient and using Pallant services has made an enormous difference to what can be a very time consuming and stressful part of General Practice. Well done to everyone. I look forward to a long and happy working relationship with the team.
    Susan Smith - Practice Manager, Glebe Surgery, Storrington
  • Moving to London as a newly qualified GP was a potentially daunting experience but Pallant made it easy to find work and meet new colleagues. I don't know what I would have done without them. I am hugely grateful to the whole team who have supported me with professionalism and empathy from my first day as a GP
    Dr Charlie Kenwood - Ex Pallanteer July 2018
  • It's been a great week. I am so pleased I have made the change to freelance.
    Dr Fiona Heaton - Pallanteer
  • I would very much like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at Pallant.  The smoothness of the booking process; ease of amending availability; payment chasing; and session structure options are second to none.  I honestly have nothing but praise for how everyone works.
    Dr Tim Stride - Pallanteer Sept 2017
  • I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all your help and support over the last 6 months.  I have really enjoyed being a member of Pallant and feel it extremely well run and a great way to locum.
    Dr Zahra Damji - Pallanteer March 2017
  • Pallant has been an amazing team to be part of and I am really going to miss it. I cannot imagine ever being a locum without Pallant. The support has been invaluable.  I really want to thank you for everything you’ve done.
    Dr Laura Price - Central London Chambers
  • It has been amazing to be part of the Pallant team for the last few years. It has been a fantastic support at 2 significant points in my career; and a privilege to have been part of the organisation. Without that, there is a very good chance that I would have ‘fallen by the way side’ as a locum so I credit Pallant with having allowed me now to be in a position to choose from these different options. I wish there was more regional/ national support for the Chambers model of working as I think it has so much to offer to GPs and Practices. Thank you to you and the team for all your work on my behalf over the last few years - the whole team has always been such a pleasure to work with and I’ve always felt well supported (absolutely invaluable).
    Dr Miriam Anscombe March 2019 - Ex Pallanteer
  • I always feel that I can discuss clinical queries, admin issues etc openly and honestly and really value the feedback and support. Definitely one of the big strengths of the chambers model.
    Dr Toni Taylor - Pallanteer Feb 2018
  • I think Pallant is great and has brought a lot of benefits to me. I love the session structure, staff who chase up payments and booking and also free me up to do GP work and reduce the tedium and admin of being a locum doctor.
    Pallanteer - December 2017
  • Hurrah for Pallant, who notice, are proactive, supportive, collaborative & make positive response to problems. Thank you, makes life as a locum a whole lot better
    Dr Alison Barnes - July 2019 - Pallanteer
  • 'I'd like to thank you and the team for all your support over the last 4 years. The booking team have been so efficient at liaising with practices on my behalf and this has really helped to give me the flexibility I have needed."
    Dr Raftery - Ex Pallanteer
  • My ‘jazz hands’ are in over drive! I love booking with Pallant, you are best service ever!
    Mrs Sue Crook - Practice Manager
  • I would like to thank every one at Pallant for all the support, and help I have received. You have all been exceptionally helpful, efficient and professional. It has been great to feel part of such a well organised and friendly team.
    Dr Kate Raymakers - Ex-Pallanteer June 2018
  • I have greatly enjoyed my time in West Kent Chambers since starting out as one of the fledgling members in 2015. In particular I will miss the excellent peer support through Chambers meetings. You all do a fantastic job, are extremely efficient and I cannot fault the service you provide. Thank you again.
    Dr Rebecca Powell-Jackson - Pallanteer March 2018
  • "The whole process of working for Pallant has been incredibly easy and seamless even over the Covid period so thank you to all the team and I will be in touch if I want to return to locuming. "
    Dr Joanna Hobbs - Pallanteer in 2020
