GP locum reliance caused half a million overspend in one area


How much do you think it costs to hire a barrister for the day, and if he/she needed to travel to 'work' their case how much do you think their expenses would be? Do you think you would get away with not paying every single hour of their travel? Compare how many years training a medical professional does compared to their legal counterparts. Do you think a barrister would fly economy? even descend to a 4 star hotel???? If anything the dramatic shift towards locuming is forcing heath boards to re-evaluate the value of General practice when they start to realise that even at £130k a year they can struggle to fill posts.......
