GP Locum Platform

Howbeck Healthcare developed and launched a GP Locum Platform in January 2018,  supporting GP Practices to fill locum sessions.

The platform is used as an online GP Locum Bank to support GP Practices to secure locum sessions to fulfil their needs along with building a supply of high calibre available GP locums.

This platform helps practices to:

  • Retain clinicians on flexible terms
  • Support the sustainability of primary care;
  • Increase the medical workforce numbers in primary care;
  • Attract new workforce to our local health economy
  • Add skill mix, with standardised minimum expertise, within primary care;
  • Act in an enabling role, helping to reduce the primary care healthcare team’s workload.

For more information about this service, please contact us.

The Findmealocum website/app is fast becoming my main way of accessing locum sessions. I find it clear, up-to-date and easy to use. As a result of using the service,  I find that I have a broader circle of practices that I am connected with. It has helped me to stay local to the Staffordshire area without having to look elsewhere for work. I think it has been a really helpful innovation to me as a local independent sessional GP.

Findmealocum is an excellent service

I can honestly say Findmealocum has been a Godsend to me, we have had a ANP leave this year and I was struggling to find a GP.  I tried the agencies but they either let me down or never came back to me.  The website is very easy to use, I have found all the GPs amazing when they have done sessions, they have been efficient and basically once I had synchronised their smartcard etc it was really easy for them to go straight into the EMIS system.  This has saved me time and money over the last 6 months.
– Susan Pyatt, Practice Manager

The findmealocum platform has taken the stress out of securing GP locums for the practice.  The platform is clear and easy to use, you can easily add any session requirements, accept bookings and see all the doctors information easily within the platform.  The GP locums that have worked in the practice have been excellent, highly experienced, knowledgeable and reliable.  I would highly recommend this fabulous resource to practices.
– Kirsty Moore, Practice Manager

Findmealocum has been great innovation to provide a local platform which is quick and easy for GP practices to advertise and fill locum sessions with no agency fees.  Findmealocum is becoming more and more used by GP practices and locum GPs.

I’ve found the website easy to use. Being able to see potential locum shifts has made it easy for me to fit shifts around my availability. I’ve found the booking process easy and hassle free. 
– Dr Matthew Lancett, GP

I had 75% of my dates filled on Findmealocum within 24 hours of uploading the locum sessions which was amazing! (Put on 41 sessions and had over 30 filled).
