Locum support

Derbyshire Medical Chambers (DMC) has adapted to respond to your locum needs through the COVID-19 pandemic to enable us to quickly deploy GPs to areas of need.  Through our portal LocumBee, practice managers can request sessions, for either face to face or remote consultations.  Please email ddlmc.chambers@nhs.net to request system set up. 

DMC also has a bank of “affiliated locums” who have been checked and vetted, are ready to work and who we match as being in your area.  DMC will rapidly respond to your need and deploy this pool of locums as soon as possible, leaving you to liaise directly.  Please use the email above to request either service
