Perfectly said Jenna. There’s evidence from various stores many of them are running very successful clinics shall we say. The use of the word ‘Essential testing’ has meant most px’s are being “converted” leading to a more profitable day. So, in terms of locum rates we need to keep them as they are if not higher if stores are having to make us work long hours.
A valid point raised by M33ENA, agencies work both ways. Would you be able to get some of those vacancies without an agent? and if not would you let say £20 odd going to them for their admin work, thats essential what it is. However,I do understand that they may advertise a lower rate, its those that accept it, ruin it.
ITS BETTER THAT YOU NEGOTIATE THE RATE WITH THEM
