Alternate LocumsYesYesYes10Shirley is the coordinator of the agency and she is really nice and always trying to achieve the rate you want!
Alternate LocumsNoYesYes8Shirley is very pleasant however she doesnt go higher than 30 not even for emergencies. Clearly doesnt consult the client with negotiating offers. Get a generic no sorry response, kinda polite I guess. But lovely lady.

LocumbellNoNoNo4Had to chase up my payments which were 2-4 weeks overdue. When I chased these payments up got a generic email to say the company apologises I've been missed. Had to request for a period when to expect the payment and chase it up again after the period was missed. Not the best I think
LocumbellNoYesYes6
LocumbellNoYesNo4Don't tend to get many shifts via this agency, wouldn't really recommend as I don't get the rate I want for my time and services.

Locate A LocumNot sureYesMaybe7I personally don't think they help in achieving high rates. When you negotiate on the app you cannot go beyond certain amount

Locate A LocumNoYesMaybe5Locate a locum has only helped me to get one shift. They are not always available and sometimes can take hours in replying. Their rates are low but there are one or two staff who do help to push the rate higher for you. There are also many shifts which have already been taken still being advertised. I won't be using locate a locum again personally because I feel it's better to go direct and get higher rates that way.

PharmfindersNoYesYes6I've not had a bad experience, think they're really nice and professional however I feel like rates need to be negotiated a little higher. After this shift, gave them call to tell them of the situation and to ensure future bookings aren't similar. Which the checked and made sure future bookings were well staffed and safe conditions.

New DirectionNot sureYesMaybe7I'd advise to stick with your rate and be confident enough to leave shifts when it's not met. Once the agency realises this, you can negotiate well. They are better than TL atleast.

Team LocumNoNoNo3I wasn’t warned that I’d have no dispenser for the twilight shift which is a major failing. Team Locum are just happy to take the money for the booking. I’m in the process of finding work by other means
