Since 2010

Locum Organiser was started back in 2010 by Dr Sian Mew, a GP locum and me, Chris Mew, a web developer.

diaryBefore then, we had made a pretty basic site to help Sian and her GP locum friends share their availability with GP practices. It worked. Sian and her colleagues got more bookings and the practices saved time.

We reckoned other locums and practices would benefit so we decided to go for it and create Locum Organiser – a site with all the tools a GP locum might need, particularly to save time on admin.

Rapid growth

Membership grew rapidly. This soon taught us however, that GP locums work in slightly different ways; what works for one locum may not quite fit the bill for another. Locuming is flexible after all and this means a site has to be flexible enough to support the various ways in which people choose to work.

Now, 8 years down the line, the feedback from literally thousands of locums has been distilled into the site. Its design can now fairly be said to have been crowdsourced!

We aim to support our locums as best we can. Our feedback on this point has been great, which is rewarding for me as this is my full-time job. Certainly, it helps to have written the code when providing support and it makes me uniquely placed to translate suggestions from locums into future features.

It’s constantly evolving. We keep listening and we keep building.

In 2017, Locum Organiser merged with Lantum, a total workforce management platform for healthcare. Over the years many GPs had asked me if Locum Organiser could also offer jobs. I looked at building this myself but having used Lantum’s technology, I thought it would be even better for us to work together. I am excited to say that Locum Organiser is now part of the Lantum offer.

I’m also very proud to say we’ve helped thousands of locums over the years. Please give us a go and see if we can help you too!

  • "One of the few sad aspects of my taking up a partnership is having to stop using your amazing service but I no longer have any need for it."

  • "I think this is fantastic. Much easier than the old way I was keeping records on Excel and using Word etc for invoicing etc."

  • "Thanks again for your brilliant website - I can’t begin to tell you how much it has transformed/enhanced my locum activities"

  • Dr. Rachel Ruddock

    "I couldn't recommend LO more highly. The pension aid, diary and financial tracking along with the many other features it offers are expertly designed and very user friendly. Even more than that, the rapid, comprehensive, professional yet personalised support with queries is outstanding. I could not and would not be a locum without it."
