We have locum work available in the U.K. from John O
Groats in the north to Lands End in the south (two famous
landmarks) for varied length assignments.
The first and most essential matter that you will have to
deal with if you live outside the U. K. is whether you personally
have the right to work in the U.K, followed by whether you
have the right to work as a dentist in the U.K.
