• Surgeries should offer a minimum of 10 minute appointments.
  • Emergency extras at the end of surgery are not normally seen.
  • Where home visits are provided only a maximum of two home visits will be done. Home visits are only done on morning surgeries and not on afternoon surgeries.
  • In exceptional circumstances where the locum is required to see emergency extras or do more than two home visits an additional charge based on an hourly rate of 65/hour will be made. This must be agreed to in advance.
  • On-call and out of hour services are not provided.
  • Repeat prescribing and paperwork are only carried out for patients seen.
  • Payment is due at the end of the month. There is a 10% surcharge for invoices that are unpaid 14 days after the end of the month.
  • Confirmed locum bookings are subject to a 100% cancellation fee if cancelled by the trust/GP practice less than 1 month from the start date of cover.
  • Every effort will be made to provide the cover specified, or alternative cover. However I reserve the right to terminate locum cover in exceptional circumstances, or if the above terms and conditions are breached.
  • Locum packs (as available from the National Association of Non-Principals) are a useful tool and help locums to maximize their efficency, keeping your costs down.
