Locum Agencies in London

5 posts in this topic

Could people please recommend which locum agencies are good for psychiatry in London (preferably North London). There appears to be a huge choice but which ones actually have the jobs and pay best?

I am Year 5 SHO having previously done 2 years of medicine and have just passed MRCPsych. I plan do do locums till the next SpR interviews.

What hourly charge should we request and what are the pros and cons of locum SHO/ staff grade/ SpR. I must say that I am fed up of SHO on-calls and the prospect of staff grade is appealing.

Many thanks for any information.

Advice for people planning to do locum work after MRCPsych is that all the agencies require a copy of your up-to-date Criminal Records Bureau Enhanced Clearance. If you do not have a copy they charge you £33 and you have to wait 4 to 6 weeks before you can start working. The CRB only hold copies of your clearance for 28 days after issue. I would therefore advise to ask your Medical Staffing for copies of your CRB whenever it is done during your SHO rotation.
