Earlier this year, one of our vets, Louise Littler, penned a thoughtful article on why she’ll never work as a locum again.

Louise talked about losing both her voice and passion while locuming and said she had no intention of returning to being self-employed.

Her story seemed to catch the imagination of many vets who have experience of working on both sides of the locum coin.

Vivien Ryan, our senior vet in Colwyn Bay, is another vet who spent several years locuming before returning to a permanent role at Vets Now.

Here she gives her reasons for deciding to come back to the business and explains why, in her experience, the grass isn’t always greener locuming.
