Reply To: The Locum Rate Pandemic


We are risking our health and are at a higher risk than other professions especially as we need to get up very close to patients during examination due to the nature of our work and although PPE lowers the risk substantially it doesn’t guarantee 100% we won’t catch the virus if we were to come into contact with someone that has the virus which is likely at some stage due to the volume of people we see and many sufferers are asymptomatic which makes it more difficult to risk assess. With all this risk and much lower rate is totally unacceptable. Locums finances have already suffered considerable during this pandemic, losing thousands every month and some can’t even apply for the government grant either (if you earn over 50k a year) and on top of this and to put the icing on the cake they want to halve the Locum rates. We are being exploited!
