Covering for an only partner is so tough

I would really welcome the return of the BMA's locum fee scales as we are now being charged £500-plus a day by our locums. I do not earn anywhere near this myself.

We try to cover the work ourselves but in a two-partner practice this makes life horrendous for the partner who is not on holiday.
