Pulse's locum GP survey: results in full

Locum GPs were asked about the key challenges they face in Pulse's first survey of this part of the profession. Here we reveal the results in full, including problems with delayed payments and a lack of enthusiasm for salaried and partner roles.



Source: The Pulse survey was launched on 25 September 2018, collating responses using the SurveyMonkey tool. The 29 questions asked covered a wide range of GP locum topics, to avoid selection bias on one issue. The survey was advertised to our readers via our website and email newsletter, with a prize draw for £200 of John Lewis tokens as an incentive to complete the survey. Around 283 locum GPs responded to this survey.
