Whether you decide to build a pool of direct locums or utilise Locate a Locum's Locum Marketplace, there are some steps you can take to improve your locum attraction.

  • Negotiate mutually beneficial rates with your locums. These rates are generally competitive and significantly lower than paying emergency locum cover
  • Build a pool of trusted locums in advance with agreed rates and conditions. This makes locum coverage increasingly predictable and cost-effective.
  • Understand locum availability in a given area at a given time. This will enable you to set the rate at an attractive yet competitive level.
  • Use a trusted locum partner, who manages locum compliance, bookings, and payments.
