Locum Hub Wales is here to help matchmake between Practice's needing Locum Shift cover and Locums available to work them.

Locum Hub Wales don't employ locums, it's purely a mechanism to help Locums and Shifts find each other more effectively.

 

Some good places to get started...

  1. Set yourself up with an account
  2. Ensure that you've connected to the Practice you work with. UPCC/Clusters have a slightly different approach. Need others pre-approved?
  3. We recommend taking the time to ensure your Practice Profile is accurate and up to date.
  4. See who has favourited your Practice in the 'My Locums' page in the 'Practice Tools' menu.
  5. Create Shifts
  6. View LHW shifts and those booked externally for confidence that Medical Indemnity is place
  7. Manage frequency of Applications emails
  8. Accepting or Rejecting Applicants/Managing Applications
  9. Still struggling to fill shifts? see our Top Tips

 

 

Overview of the Locum Shifts process 

  1. Practice User adds shifts - see Create Shifts
  2. Locums are automatically notified of shift(s), or browses and finds shift(s). They can view more information and then apply or ignore.
  3. Practice User will be notified by summary email that a new application has been received - you can manage the frequency of this from "Notification Settings" in the Initials Menu - more info on Applications emails
  4. Practice User can login to view applications via the "Manage Applications" page in the Practice Tools menu, or by finding the relevant shift date - more info on Managing Applications
  5. Practice User can accept/reject applicants
    1. Accepted Locums will be immediately emailed, as are any rejected (any not accepted will be automatically informed that they were unsuccessful - until Multiple Accept is brought online in early June)
    2. Note Locums can withdraw applications at any time, or if they are accepted for a different shift at an overlapping time they will be automatically withdrawn from any other applications to ensure they can't be working in two places at the same time.
  6. Locum works the shift
  7. If using Automated Invoicing, you'll get a monthly invoice from each Locum

 

 

Shift Statuses

  • Unfilled = a shift in the past which was not accepted, either because there were no applicants, or those applicants weren't accepted in time for the shift
  • Open = a posted future shift without any applicants
  • Applied For = a posted future shift with at least one live applicant (i.e. hasn't been accepted/rejected yet) If the only applicant is rejected the shift status will revert to 'Open'
  • Accepted = a posted future shift with an accepted Locum to do the shift
  • Cancelled (by Practice/Location) = a posted shift in past or future but was created then cancelled by the OOH Manager
  • Cancelled (by Locum) = a posted shift in the past or future which used to be accepted but then the accepted Locum clicked to 'Can't Attend', completed the reasoning information and declaration (which is emailed to all Practice Users immediately)
