Practice Manager Reviews:
I have been working very closely with App Locum since December 2015. Our GP surgery is open 8am – 8pm, 365 days a year and during all operation hours, I have to have a GP on site which does cause me issues at times when I have our salaried GP’s on holiday or off sick.

I am always assured when I contact them with details of shifts I need to have filled that they will try their best to arrange a locum and probably 95% of the time they are successful in doing this. The only times I recall them not being able to provide a locum to me has been during school and religious holidays where GP locum availability tends to reduce. Even if they are unable to fulfil your request they always ring you to advise which is quite a big thing for me as I have previously used locum agencies where you ask them to cover a shift and then never hear from them again which is not ideal.

We have a consultant assigned to our practice which works really well and we have built up a great rapport however when I have had to speak to other members of the their team they have all been extremely professional, helpful and go out of their way to solve your problem.

All the locums we have had from App Locum have been very good and most are now regulars who work with us on a weekly basis. All the GP’s are extremely hardworking and have had great reviews from our patients.

I would have no hesitation in recommending their service to other practices, I have given their details to all practices within Bury and a good number of them have also began to use them as well.

AppLocum are a first class agency with friendly, professional and efficient staff. They supply me with regular locums and will always go the extra mile to find me additional staff at short notice. They are proactive and have a good understanding of my requirements and will always do their utmost to fill my vacant shifts. I will continue to use AppLocum as one of my main suppliers as they are a pleasure to work with and they know the type of staff that meet the needs of my service.
