Unfortunately there are Locums out there that are happy to accept the lowering of the fees across the board. I know a few Locums that have started boycotting the multiples out of principal if they aren’t offering a reasonable amount for a daily rate.
I think I speak for most of us when I say we are not greedy we just expect to be paid the professional fees we are due. Let’s think why our rate is higher than a resident:
We pay and file our own taxes
We don’t claim maternity leave and allowance costing the company double!
We don’t have holiday pay
We run the risk of being sued on a daily basis in several locations due to having to make riskier clinical decisions as we don’t have the luxury of time to analyse repeat tests for patients.
