Have you been affected by Tescos rate cut, from 18th July 2022, to your pre-agreed bookings/rate. Do not fear as there is so much available work elsewhere at much better rates so vote with your feet and register with us today! If locums accept such rate cuts then other companies will follow!!

Tesco had recently introduced a new booking system offering fantastic rates and trying to side-line agencies... now you can see why!!!! So support your agency as they ensure you get a fair and decent rate.
