What doctors do the NHS need the most?

August saw the influx of new junior doctors stampede through NHS trusts across the country, meaning locum doctors were in incredibly high demand, covering wards in all departments whilst new arrivals were trained and brought up to speed by permanent staff. Maintaining exceptionally high levels of patient care while hospital administration was up in the air with documentation for FY1’s, means that medical staffing teams have had to look to locum doctors to deliver excellent care, with a fantastic bedside manner and an experienced professionalism. With trusts everywhere from Scotland to Cornwall needing an extra pair of hands, and placements available in a range of grades and specialties, now is a great time to try out some locum shifts, and see firsthand the advantages of the locum lifestyle.
