Recruitment Services:

Permanent pharmacy jobs can be automatically sent to all locum pharmacists in the area, as well as a more detailed list can be sent to those locums who have expressed an interest in employment within that area irrespective of their current location.

TotalLocum's use of technology to augment and streamline our operating procedures, co-ordinating the availability of locum pharmacists with the needs of the pharmacies, means we have the time and resources available to ensure we provide the total package of support.

The online E-Diary contains details of all the locum pharmacists work preferences including how much they will work for, whom they will work for, where they will work and obviously, when they want to work. This is then automatically compared against the similar requirements of the pharmacies within seconds of the details being added so the locum knows they are getting the job they want and the pharmacy gets the locum they need. The locum pharmacist is alerted via email, text messaging (so you do not have to log onto your E-Diary all the time) and by an alteration to the E-Diary and once both parties have accepted, the booking becomes confirmed, which automatically updates the E-diary. Locums can instantly accept work by replying to the email or the text message.

All of this is managed by the LocumDiary system making it so simple and ensuring mistakes and double bookings are a thing of the past. No longer can there be any disputes over the details of a booking as everyone has the agreed day of work, hours, rate of pay etc.

You know that TotalLocum has acted upon your request immediately - no more waiting around for the locum agency to get back to you. 24hours a day, 7 days a week we are working for you. Locum pharmacists can rest assured that they are not being sent miles from home when more suitable work is available locally. You stay in control at all times.

All you do is keep your personal E-Diary up to date with requests and preferences. You can change your preferences for a particular week or day and view all your bookings on one simple system.

TotalLocum will provide access to unique services for the locum pharmacist* that will make agency work easier and more rewarding benefiting both the locum and pharmacy including:

  • Information on the stores including directions, computer guides, and business level and support staff.
  • Access to monthly accounting spreadsheets to vastly simplify completion of the yearly Tax Return including help sheets to inform them of the tax benefits available as a locum pharmacist.
