Q: How far ahead can I plan my Locum cover for holidays or pre-arranged annual leave?
A: As far ahead as you wish. It is a good idea to always plan ahead wherever possible as locum cover can be difficult to arrange at short notice in the busy periods of the year like the summer or around Christmas. However, the vast majority of locum contracts are arranged with as little as 24 hours notice (sometimes a lot less) and we try to assist.
