The Suffolk Locum Service co-ordinator will email the log-in details to you as soon as you are registered.
  • Have the opportunity to get involved in developing the Suffolk Locum Service so that it truly becomes a support service for locums and practices.


“Suffolk Locum Service has made a huge difference. There are plenty of opportunities and the booking system is very easy. A lot of the sessions are advertised at short notice – so it’s much easier to book work at the last minute.  This service is very apt for people like me who are new to the area and who have to depend on agencies to provide work.

I will definitely make use of it again.”
