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!

  • "Quick note to say big thank you for supporting me with this fantastic software as a newbie sessional GP. Practices have been very impressed with my invoicing quality and process and also very complementary. Keep up the good work and best of luck with the future of the company. Thanks once again."

  • "I think the website is fantastic and as a GP new to locuming it has addressed all my anxieties about managing the bookings, invoicing, pension forms etc, so thank you!"

  • "Am just new to the website and locum-ing world, and so far have found your site very intuitive. Much better having it online than just on one PC"

  • "I'd just like to say how impressed at the levels of detail and thought put into your product. It is absolutely outstanding and is very easy to use. I'm particularly impressed with the links to the address and phone number that appear in each calendar entry! Thanks and I look forward to being a long-term user."

    "Locum Organiser really is the only tool you need when starting out as a locum and then continuing! It is simple to use, easy to access and allows you to do everything from a diary that syncs with your others, invoicing, hours recording and pension administration. For me its a no brainer, I use locum organiser to simplify what can be an onerous task for any GP."
