There is never a shortage of available OOH work, especially with the implications of the Five Year Forward View. With the requirement for more extended access hubs, there is even more need for GPs to work sessions outside of their normal scope of work.
This means that OOH is at your fingertips 7 days a week, 365 days a year. So, as a locum GP, you can book into work these sessions whenever you want to.
Lantum works with 40+ Federations across the UK, and supports extended access hubs.
We talked about the scope of work available to you before. Another benefit of there always being OOH work available, is that it provides an easy way to earn good money.
Often, due to the unsociable hours, the rates are better - especially for the overnight and weekend sessions.
The hours available also means you can work longer sessions, allowing you to earn even more. And you can work when and how suits you best, so you stay in full control of your schedule and decide your work-life balance.
This is something Dr Ishani Patel enjoys about OOH work:
“Out of hours General practice is a great way to supplement your income. It does require you to inform your indemnity provider, as there are usually different rates of insurance. Having said that, when you know you have a tax payment, or are looking to clear your mortgage quicker or save for that special holiday, out of hours sessions can help you get there that much quicker.”
Whilst Out of Hours work isn’t for everyone, there are many benefits that make it a viable professional opportunity for many GPs. We explored some of these in our recent blog, The Benefits of Working OOH as a Locum GP.
OOH sessions add variety to your day, promote a sense of teamwork and offer the opportunity to earn good money, whenever you need it.
