Getting Started as a Locum GP
Setting your Locum Fees The current law does not allow us to set recommended locum fees. However the BMA and the NASGP have jointly published guidance on how individual locums can set their fees. The PDF also contains a useful calculator in excel format allowing you to do the calculations simply. Guidance on calculating locum fees: http://www.bma.org.uk/ap.nsf/AttachmentsByTitle/PDFlocum/$FILE/new+fees+doc+for+web.pdf http://www.bma.org.uk/ap.nsf/AttachmentsByTitle/EXCELlocum/$FILE/locum_calculator.xls
