  • Do you live in areas such as London or Birmingham where competition is tough for locum work?
  • Are you looking for a change of scenery in a beautiful area of the country?
  • Would you like to be in demand and earn more?
  • Do you enjoy meeting new people and have a sense of adventure?

 

If your answer to these questions is yes, then read on. There are areas of the country where locum pharmacists are in high demand such as London and Birmingham in particular. We have identified 3 of the areas that could be a good base for a pharmacist to relocate to as a result of the surrounding areas being in need of locums. We know it could be daunting to relocate from places like London and Birmingham. Therefore, we have provided very rough estimates on AirBnB prices in the area if short term placements are more suitable for you.

This could be a permanent relocate or you could choose to book week long or month long placements. We are confident that we could fill your diary with locum bookings if you were available in one of these areas.

 

You would need to meet the following requirements:

  • Be fully registered with Pharmaseekers
  • Have an Enhanced DBS certificate subscribed to The Update Service
  • Have your own transport
  • Be open to working for a variety of different pharmacies large & small
