Local full day locum rates in my patch are £600 to £650 for 16 + 16 and 2 visits....no paperwork, telephone calls, tasks, pathology, constant interruptions, liaising with the stressed practice manager, CCG meetings etc Times that by a 4 day week over a 40 week year and you are looking at an income of 96 to 104k per annum... No wonder newly qualified often choose locuming....I probably would if I were in their shoes again
