Dr Sreemanti Chaudhuri

Consultant (United Kingdom)


I'm already employed as a doctor in Australia/New Zealand, can I take on this locum as well?

Yes. The employment contracts in Australia and/or New Zealand do not restrict your ability to take on other work like locums.

Do I have to pay for travel and accommodation?

In many arrangements your travel and accomodation is covered as part of the working arrangements. 

Do I have to organise the patients and roster?

No, we work with our clients and make sure you have a full roster and schedule.

What is the advantage of working with a medical recruitment agency?

The benefits of working as a doctor, nurse or healthcare staff with a medical recruitment agency such as Mercury, is not only that we have a deep knowledge of the market that you can tap into, but we also share relationships with many hospitals, increasing your chances of finding the role you are looking for. The other advantage of working with a solid healthcare recruitment agency includes our relations with compliancy agencies like New Zealand Medical Council and New Zealand Immigration.

Does this replace my current public or private work?

Most of our doctors do this to supplement their current work, but this is your choice and will depend on opportunities we have available. You can choose to do this in addition to your current work or as a replacement.
