Sessional / Locum Job Opportunities
At the moment there is a wealth of work available out there for locums. The challenge is where do you want to work, what do you want to do and how do you let prospective employers know about you?
Locums can advertise their availability via the Wessex LMCs website, please see the following link for further information: https://www.wessexlmcs.com/jobsectionprofessionalsavailabletoworkuserguide

You can also use NHS Choices to search for nearby practices and then send them your CV.
There are a number of choices open to you as a locum – you can practice totally independently or you can join a group – these can provide different levels of support – from simply allowing practices to find you more easily to helping you with admin and in some cases provide some professional peer support in terms of CPD together.

Longer term work in practices (salaried or retainer)
Why might I do this?
Some people prefer the stability and continuity offered by consistently working in one location with one team and seeing one set of patients over a longer period of time. If you become an employee you also gain certain benefits of paid annual leave, sick leave and maternity leave.
