Locum rates

Every year Medeconomics surveys GP locums from across the country to find out what they earn for work booked directly with practices and work booked via agencies. Our latest survey was carried out in August 2019 and involved 435 respondents.

You can access the latest tables below. There are also links to the locum rate tables from the previous two years, along with links to information and resources to help practices manage their locums more effectively.
