The majority of locums found that locum work has increased in the last month, the BMA has said.
In its latest tracker survey, locum doctors reported that in the last month locum work had increased.
Of the 27.97% of respondents who undertook locum work, a third (9.32%) reported an increase. Just under a third (8.49%) reported no change, but said that they could have done more work had they wished to.
Only 5.19% said they felt that locum work had decreased.
Survey results correspond with record bookings seen on the NASGP’s platform, LocumDeck.
Mid-month statistics show that sessional GPs had broken existing records this month on three counts:
– Highest number of bookings for GP locums in one month.
– Highest number of GP locums booking sessions in one month.
– Highest number of GP practices making bookings with GP locums in one month.
