We run your assignment past our locums to see who is available and interested. Responses are usually received within about 40-60 minutes and we forward across our preferred locums for you to consider. At the same time, we will send over a copy of our terms and conditions for your attention. Nothing too onerous in these – our locums work on a self-employed basis and invoice you weekly. We invoice you monthly with our fee being based on the hours worked.
Once you have decided on your preferred locum we arrange for you to speak to them directly or book them in to cover your assignment. On request we send you one or two references, proof of ID, proof of residence and a copy of the locum’s practising certificate if relevant.
The process can be undertaken extremely quickly. Our record is an assignment registration at 4.50pm on a Thursday, with a locum starting at 9am on the Friday.
