Locum GPs forced to claim benefits as work dries up


People are locums for different reasons. I’ve been a partner and it chewed me up and spat me out. I nearly lost my house. No one could of foreseen this happening. I am lucky that I have a CCG job with a regular income so not dependent on locum GP income. I don’t feel that comments such as it’s karma or bleating are helpful. No wonder we can’t improve our working conditions if we can’t pull together and support each other!
