Our Promise
TotalLocum has been established for 20 years and the reason that we are still going strong is that we deal fairly and efficiently with all our locums and clients. No exaggerated claims... what we say we will do is what we will do !
How do I use the system?
Finding work or a locum is easy with the TotalLocum Booking System. All you have to do is logon to our registration page, let us know what your preferences are for work (e.g. rate of pay / travelling distance), complete the diary to let us when you are available and from then on you will be notified of any jobs that match your criteria.

Then it's your choice whether to accept the job - no pressure, no hassle. You can use the system as a standalone tool or to complement your regular bookings.

How does your system work!
We use a simple database to match your preference to the thousands of daily bookings being made in the U.K. locum market. It's that easy. No need to plough through sheets of available dates just to find there are no suitable placements or the date you want has already gone. 

No harassment from your agency for placements that you do not want to do. You put in all your preferences for work and the system selects a job for each date that matches your preferences. You just select accept or decline online or via text messaging and your electronic diary automatically updates itself so no more double bookings.

I can't be bothered to check my E-mail every evening!
No need. TotalLocum will text message you if you have a job waiting for confirmation. You will be able to accept or decline via text messaging also.
I like talking to a person!
Yes we do have real people to talk to. We work away on your behalf to ensure all the systems are up to date and working efficiently and we are getting you the jobs you want.
What rates can I charge?
It's entirely up to you. You decide which rates you want to charge.
Why should I change?
We offer so many more support systems and benefits to make Locum work more enjoyable. TotalLocum provides you with a sophisticated online E-Diary allowing you to access our agency services 24/7. 

TotalLocum provides locums with detailed information on the pharmacy, including expected level of support, pharmacy business level and maps/directions to the pharmacy. 

TotalLocum provides computer system guides, help sheets on company procedures, a guide to locuming, guide/spreadsheet for taxation and regular newsletters to keep you updated with issues in community pharmacy..

Will I get enough work?
We work with every major pharmacy company to secure as much work as possible for you. We operate very differently to other agencies and it is an approach that the companies like.
