    It’s ok to ask as it’s obviously a genuine question. Personally I always arranged my own locums when I was self employed in retail. Try to get known around your area for being reliable, friendly and hard working.
    Lively debate is encouraged but please respect the opinions and feelings of others.
    Please help keep the forum vibrant by spreading the work to friends and colleagues via word of mouth or social media.
    Thank you for contributing to this site.

      Me too.
      Get on the phone to the smaller chains in your area.
      47 BC : Julius Cesar : Veni Vidi Vici : I came, I saw I conquered.
      2018 AD : Modern Man : I shopped, I clicked, I collected.
      How times change.

      If you find you have read something that has upset or offended you an anyway please unread it at once.

        I confess to never using an agency. First day I started regular locums after retiring from industry, was to visit all the local pharmacies. At lunch time I was asked if I could work that very afternoon. 60 years ago, I just placed an ad in the PJ and was deluged with requests.
        I always turned up early and often was first to arrive. I did deliveries in my own time and tried not to leave the next pharmacist with non dispensed or non checked scripts. On locum voice, I did write a long post on how to be a locum.
        When booking a locum ensure you know where to park and always have a staff home phone number you can call in case of emergency. Once held up on the M1 and another time collapsed with vertigo on way out of the house.
        You will soon gain a reputation for reliability. Ensure methadone scripts dispensed early. New addicts were given a contract to sign to make sure they turned up an hour after opening and an hour before closing. Otherwise they will be waiting on the door step and coming in just as you are trying to close. Happened to me at first methadone pharmacy, and, of course they came in a group.
