If you’ve been following our social media over the last few weeks, you will notice that we have been creating a series of demo videos to visually show you how simple and easy it is to use the LocumBase platform. 

We care deeply about the feedback provided to us and we listened! 

Our platform is constantly evolving and improving to make your experience on the platform seamless.

LocumBase is the online software platform that matches the profiles of Medical Professionals with Medical Practices. Think of us an Airbnb - but for medical professionals and practices!

It is simple and easy to sign up to the platform and FREE.

The industries we specialise in and offer Locum opportunities are:

  • General Medical
  • Optometry
  • Pharmacy
  • Nursing
  • Dental
  • Radiology

We also offer other industries such as Physiotherapy, Psychology, Dietary, Radiography, Therapy and many more.

How to sign up as a Locum

The LocumBase platform is not like any other traditional recruitment platform because we provide you with a flexible calendar in which you tell us when you’re available. You also provide your own hourly rates as well as the location in which you want to receive locum offers.

If you’re a first time user of our platform, this demo video will show you exactly how to sign up to the LocumBase platform. It takes just 5 minutes!

How to set your availability

Once you have your profile up and running, you want to set your availability on your personal calendar. This means telling us when you are free to Locum so we know when to contact you.

This will also display in the search results of a Practice’s profile when they’re searching for a locum based on the days that you have marked yourself available.

This demo video below will show you exactly how to set your availability on your LocumBase calendar.

How to show you’re booked elsewhere

As much as it is important for you to tell us when you are available to receive Locum offers, it is just as important to tell us when you are not available. So, instead of marking your days as “available”, you would mark them as “unavailable”. This could be anything from being booked elsewhere to just simply taking a break.

It is as important to tell us you are not available to prevent Practices from sending you booking requests on days you are not available and to also prevent us from contacting you for days that you are not available.

The demo video below will show you how to show that you’re booked elsewhere.

LocumBase is a software as a service platform that connects medical professionals and practices directly with no hidden fees. We have over 5 000 medical professionals signed up to our system across industries and over 600 active, medical practices.
