How it works

The Locum Market is an online tool for locums, practices and agencies that allows them to request or offer local GP locum services in the easiest possible way. We aim to bring transparency and efficiency to the locum marketplace.

We automate much of what is happening in the locum market by using a sequential requesting system. Whenever a practice requests a session, the request is first relayed to its regular doctors, then to a local pool of locums before finally being sent to multiple agencies.

For locums, The Locum Market is free of charge. Practices are charged a fraction of current agency charges when sessions are agreed from the pool of locums online. No charge is made to practices when they agree sessions with their regular locums via our service.

What’s more, as we know that locums are often searching for longer-term jobs, we also advertise local salaried and partnership jobs. And as we are not an agency, locums are free to take up any post with practices they meet via The Locum Market, with no restrictions.
