Getting a locum to cover a shift can be hard work these days. Getting out your list, going down it one by one can be time consuming, and cost the surgery money.
An alternative to this is using recruitment agencies, but it has been known that recruitment agencies charge 30% on average which has cost nearly 2bn last year alone.
Recruitment Agencies also underpay the locum doctors and prevent them getting there NHS Pensions.
Another way of getting locums is by using Chambers sites, but Chambers charge a fee to the locums to join or charge a percentage of their wage, which mean less money for the locums.
This is where DealDirectLocums.com can help.
DealDirectLocums.com allows surgeries to take control of the locum hiring process by allowing the surgery to:
- Control the level of pay the locum gets (It is not dictated by an agency or the locum).
- Advertising the hours required (not being told to commit to a day shift when you only need them for a morning).
- Advertise way in advance – which increases the chance of a successful placement.
- Look at the Locums Profile and Essential Documents before booking the Locum Doctor.
It is also a lot cheaper to book a locum because you pay the locum directly and our fee is only £5 per Shift successfully booked.
