Calling all locums to help with the war on the COVID-19 virus

NHS organisations around the UK, tell us that as the fight against the COVID-19 virus intensifies, the healthcare workforce will have to become even more adaptable.

Wed 8th April 2020 The PDA

We have told them that pharmacists have unique skills and should be considered for some of this COVID-19 related activity.

We exist to support our members and have argued that the locum population, is a large, adaptable and mobile section of the pharmacist workforce. If it can be used properly, it could unlock many additional possibilities in the war on this virus.

This could be a new dimension to your remunerated locum work and we invite you to participate. If you do, then we will try to facilitate both the access to the opportunities and the associated training where necessary.

Please complete the PDA survey to register your interest and to find out more information about this initiative, the type of roles you may be asked to undertake along with advising of your geographical preferences.
