GP recruitment issues push locum rates to £1.4k a day in one area

Comment

Agree with Fedup - something dodgy. I cannot believe a GP in Dumfries would do a locum fo £90/ day - or even £80/day. I suspect they represent a locum hour (i.e. staying on an hour longer than planned), being reported as a day. Similarly - might NHS Orkney, being so rural represent a 24 hour shift?
