Locum GP

A locum doctor is one who temporarily fills a rota gap within a hospital, clinic or general practice. This can often be on a relatively short-term basis, although in the healthcare sector, it’s not uncommon for locums to hold their post as part of a practice’s core medical team for more extended periods. Anyone with a medical degree and full GMC registration can become a locum
