Locums Umbrella Services Limited is a premier umbrella company for contractors which established its dominance in the healthcare sector after its launch in 2007. Formerly known as Locums Limited, we changed our name in 2014.
We were set up by Chris Robinson, a KPMG trained accountant. It was his knowledge and expertise of specialist medical locum recruitment agencies gained as part of the finance teams of two of the UK’s leading healthcare recruitment companies that led him to set up Locums Limited.
We work with hundreds of recruitment agencies, recruiters and thousands of busy contractors with one aim, to make life as easy as possible for you and give you peace of mind.
Unique in our ability to provide a dedicated service to healthcare workers, we provide industry standard and legislation-compliant PAYE payroll solutions to all contractors working in the healthcare and caring industries. We work in line with HMRC regulations and in close consultation with one of the big 4 accounting firms who operate as our legal advisors, guaranteeing our contractors complete compliance and an absolutely transparent service.
