Company Specific Terms & Conditions

With effect from 21st September 2009


1.1 These Standard Terms and Conditions of LocumDiary Ltd, trading and hereinafter referred to as "TotalLocum", form the only contract (the "Contract") between TotalLocum and any person firm or company (the "Client") that uses TotalLocum's services to procure the engagement of a locum pharmacist (the "Locum"). The Client shall be deemed to have accepted this Contract upon using the services of TotalLocum. This Contract may be varied and reissued to the Client from time to time by TotalLocum and no variation or alternative terms and conditions made by the Client shall be valid unless expressly agreed with and signed by TotalLocum.


2.1 The Client and TotalLocum will from time to time agree the remuneration rates (the "Rate") for Locums.

2.2 Payment of the Locum at the Rate is the sole responsibility and obligation of the Client, who must make such payment directly and forthwith to the Locum upon termination of the engagement or weekly (whichever shall be the earlier event), unless the Locum and the Client agree an alternative schedule of payment.

2.3 The Locum and the Client shall share sole responsibility for ensuring that all Income Tax, National Insurance Contributions and other statutory payments as assessable under Schedule D of the Finance Act are paid as necessary.


3.1 The TotalLocum "Daily Booking Fee" (which TotalLocum shall exclusively and from time to time determine and notify in writing to the Client) will become due and payable by the Client upon the Client's confirmation of its booking of a Locum procured via TotalLocum's services, even if the Client subsequently cancels said booking. The daily booking fee is £20 + VAT unless otherwise advised in writing.

3.2 A Locum whose booked services are cancelled by a Client may without limitation retain rights to seek compensation or damages from the Client.

3.3 Where a Locum cancels a confirmed booking:

3.3.1 TotalLocum will use its best endeavours to find a suitable alternative replacement Locum for the Client;

3.3.2 If TotalLocum can procure no suitable alternative Locum, it may credit the Client with such Daily Booking Fee as the Client may have pre-paid for said cancelled booking;

3.3.3 TotalLocum shall bear no liability for any loss or damage of the Client arising from said cancellation.

3.4 TotalLocum reserves the right to charge statutory interest and compensation for debt recovery costs under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts [Interest] Act 1998, as amended and supplemented by the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2002 on any unpaid debt owed for more than 30 days by the client.

3.5 TotalLocum has no contract for services with the Locum. For the avoidance of doubt, a Client that procures the engagement of a Locum through the TotalLocum's services is jointly responsible with the engaged Locum for any contract for services between them, save that any such contract for services will not limit the Client's responsibilities and obligations under this Contract.


4.1 For the avoidance of doubt, in this clause 4: -

4.1.1 "Associate" has the meaning prescribed in the Companies Act 2006 or any re-enactment thereof:

4.1.2 "indirectly booked" and "indirectly engages" includes the reintroduction by the Locum him/herself, or by some other third party, or by an Associate of either the Client or the Locum;

4.1.3 "Buy Out Fee" means 20% of the first complete year's salary for the said Locum if the Locum becomes a permanent employee of the Client;

4.2 The Client acts in the capacity of TotalLocum's Agent for TotalLocum's services when it directly or indirectly engages or introduces to an Associate a Locum whom it has previously directly or indirectly booked via TotalLocum's services within the preceding twelve calendar months.

4.3 The Client (or, as the case may be, the Client's Associate) must forthwith (and in any event within five days) inform TotalLocum and shall be responsible for the prevailing TotalLocum Daily Booking Fee or, as the case may be, a "Buy Out Fee" when it engages or introduces to an Associate a Locum whom the Client has previously directly or indirectly booked via TotalLocum's services within the preceding twelve calendar months.

4.4 In the event the Client fails within five days to inform TotalLocum when it engages or introduces to an Associate a Locum whom it has previously directly or indirectly booked via TotalLocum's services within the preceding twelve calendar months the Client: -

4.4.1 shall become liable to TotalLocum for the daily booking fee applicable on and with effect from the date of the breach (and for the purposes of this clause 4.4, and by virtue of the Client's frustration of this Contract, the liability shall be deemed to be and treated as a late payment of a commercial debt) for damages for losses arising from the breach, including but not limited to legal costs and expenses, enquiry agent fees, investigative and forensic accountancy fees, staff wages, and all costs and expenses pertaining thereto pursuant to clause 3.4, for interest from time to time on such sums calculated in clauses 4.4.1 and 4.4.2


4.4.2 shall co-operate fully with TotalLocum in any investigation and reasonable requests for relevant disclosure that TotalLocum may make of the Client's engagement of specified Locums within specified periods.

4.5 It is the Client's responsibility and obligation to ensure that

4.5.1 any person acting upon its behalf, and

4.5.2 any Associate benefiting from the Client's introduction as TotalLocum's Agent is aware of and complies fully with the terms and conditions of this Contract.


5.1 TotalLocum is an employment agency and will operate as an employment agency in relation to the Client.

5.2 The Client must inform TotalLocum if it is aware of any risks in its premises to the health or safety of the Locum and what steps the Client has taken to prevent or control such risks.

5.3 TotalLocum is not and cannot be responsible for:

5.3.1 any acts or omissions of a Locum;

5.3.2 any failure of a Locum to provide partly or in full the services requested by the Client;

5.3.3 any loss of the Client, financial or otherwise, including without limitation any civil or criminal or regulatory claim or proceedings or liability arising from any act or omission or failure or conduct of a Locum.

5.4 If the Client is dissatisfied with a Locum it must immediately contact TotalLocum.

5.5 Copies of the Locum's qualification as a pharmacist and registration with the GPhC can be provided upon request. Copies of a Locums' references or past work history may be provided upon request for the Client's determination of suitability or otherwise of the Locum.

5.6 Locums booked via TotalLocum's services will at the time of booking be currently registered with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain.

5.7 The Client must ensure that it has in force suitable and adequate comprehensive professional indemnity insurance policies to cover the period of engagement of the Locum and such professional services and other services that the Locum shall supply.

5.8 The Client shall not share with any other parties any business information or materials or Locum details supplied by TotalLocum without TotalLocum's express permission. All documents and information provided by TotalLocum remain the strict property of TotalLocum and may not be copied, reproduced, stored in a retrieval system or transmitted in any form, either in part or in full, without the express prior written permission of TotalLocum.
