How does the locum process work?

You can book locum dental staff for any time in the future for long or short term cover. We can also take ‘on the day’ bookings for when unexpected cover is required. 

We answer calls from 6.30am – 22:00pm every day of the week, including bank holidays, so it’s important that locum staff give clear details of their availability in advance.

After staff are booked

Once booked, locum staff are expected to arrive with their Cavity uniform and name badge (both provided). At the end of the working day, dental locum staff should get a timesheet signed so the dental practice or healthcare provider can be billed for the time given.
