How we differ and what that means to our Doctors

Born from a background in executive health management, we understand the clinical, operational and governance complexities that come with managing a hospital department or practice.

We are proud of our ability to create the right clinical environments for doctors to truly own their jobs.

Our doctors benefit from

  • Attractive rates and salaries. Doctors who commit to ongoing fixed-term work receive top locum rates
  • Preference for rosters and whom they work with
  • The right of contract renewals before they go to market
  • Involvement in policy frameworks
  • Upskilling in areas of interest
  • Travel and accommodation arranged
  • Our GPs can flick the switch off at the end of the day… we take care of the admin part of the role


We focus on your professional needs and upon identifying a role, team, and location most beneficial to your chosen pathway, we support you by taking care of everything so you can carry out your clinical responsibilities with confidence.

Our offering to health services

Working in partnership with hospitals and health services to deliver and manage a tailored outsourced managed service of medical workforce solutions, we strive to ensure optimal staffing levels, reducing turnover and enhancing overall efficiency in delivering high-quality patient care.

Our location-specific workforce models are safe, cost-effective and sustainable and based on a three-way relationship between the local health service, the doctors, and Medical Directions. Through this partnership, doctors become part of the clinical team, rather than a temporary locum. Consequently, patient satisfaction levels increase, and continuity of care is delivered with better health outcomes achieved.

Here are some of our client success stories over the past 15+ years.

Our remarkable doctors
are our ambassadors

  • I have always found MD to be the best locum agency that I have come in contact with. They are truly a team that works keeping the doctor's interest at the top. Even though I have over the years come in contact with several other agencies, I do not doubt believing that MDA has been the best of them all.
