GPs secure locum cover for colleagues gradually returning from sick leave


The Statement of Financial Entitlements (SFE) says that NHS England ‘may also provide locum support for performers who are returning from sickness leave (((((or for those who are at risk of needing to go on sickness leave’.))))) The last part is interesting... As the service gets stretched... the last ones standing are at risk of stress and burnout Does this qualify for locum support?
