Locums at NHS-run practices faced with 'unacceptable workload'


If they don’t make a stand, they shouldn’t be surprised if the workload gets worse and worse. Work at a safe pace. After five hours per session, the outstanding work should be handed back to their employer on the grounds that it isn’t indemnified, not to mention paid. If they feel they have to carry on, to avoid harm to patients, then charge them punitive overtime rates. Maybe something will be done about it then.
