I thought the AOP was supposed to be our ‘union’ but unfortunately they don’t really help independent locums very much. I joined this group because we can help one another to improve conditions and this seems to be having an effect. At least Boots is making some effort to listen to complaints now!
A good start would be to organize some system of claiming the CET funding. Boots won’t do it for locums. Specsavers will but it can be difficult to claim if you only work for Boots. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
