LetsLocum will endeavour to ensure that its registered workers are suitably qualified and registered with all appropriate and professional bodies, LetsLocum insists that employers perform their own relevant checks on workers to ensure locums booked are of suitability. Locum bookings confirmed via the platform are accepted in goodwill but we cannot guarantee that the locum will arrive and perform the required task as expected by the employer. LetsLocum will not accept any liability for loss or delays of service provision by the candidate in question.

“Booking”    A Confirmed Application to provide services in accordance with the Shift/Job posted on the LetsLocum Platform decided by the Pharmacy Client. When workers book a shift, they cannot start to negotiate a rate. A successful booking occurs in the understanding that they agree to the rate that was listed.

“Timesheet”            Part of the book keeping functionality where a Pharmacy Client acknowledges that a successful applicant has completed their booking. This is to prevent workers charging in error for shifts they had cancelled, or not yet completed and so forth. Bookings confirmed via the platform are accepted in goodwill but are not guaranteed i.e. if the locum/worker will arrive and perform the required task as expected by the employer/client.

“Notification”Alerts in the User dashboard informing them of an event, such as a booking confirmation, acceptance, shift availability and so forth. LetsLocum bears no loss or liability for notifications not actioned in the relevant manner by users.

 

“Cancellation”The process of deciding or announcing that a planned vacancy listing will not take place. Due to the nature of our platform and services we do not guarantee any employment or compensate for loss of earnings to Workers. In the event that a client cancels a booking, we hold no responsibility for loss of earnings. If a client cancels a confirmed booking they must notify LetsLocum and the respective Worker booked immediately. If a worker ie successful booked applicant cancels a booking they must notify the Client and LetsLocum immediately. If a User does not notify the other affected party, they maybe penalties involved and is considered gross unprofessional behaviour. It is imperative that Locums inform the Pharmacy to prevent any fines that may occur on their business from the NHS, this may also affect you ability to obtain bookings from other clients, so users are advised to keep such matters to minimum. The accepted applicant also acknowledges and agrees that any such cancellation or any failure to complete a confirmed booking will be reflected on their profile and displayed to any clients to which they make applications to provide their services. If there a extenuating circumstance or a Force Majeure then the User wishing to cancel must notify LetLocum both written and verbally so as to discuss as soon as the matter becomes apparent. These will be dealt with case by case and may not impact their respective profiles. Whilst LetsLocum will endeavour to assist in the replacement with a suitable alternative worker, this will be entirely discretionary. Should no suitable replacement be found, LetsLocum will assume no liability to the loss or damage to either the Client or Worker. Workers may be required to attend an alternative Client in order to help cover cancellations provided the request is given to the parties involved in timely reasonable manner.

 

“Force Majeure” An unforeseeable circumstances that prevent the User from fulfilling their obligation be that Client or Worker. This includes occurrences beyond the reasonable control of a party and therefore would NOT cover:

  • Any result of the negligence or malfeasance of a party, which has a materially adverse effect on the ability of such party to perform its obligations
  • Any result of the usual and natural consequences of external forces.
  • Any circumstances that are specifically contemplated (included) in these terms and require the correct cancellation protocol

LetsLocum shall bear no liability for any loss or damage of the User arising from said cancellation. LetsLocum shall not be liable to any parties in the event that you are unable to perform any of our obligations under these Terms owing to circumstances beyond our control including but not exclusive to acts of god, national emergency, terrorist intervention, an outbreak of war/hostilities.

 

“Cancellation Period” The period of time where the User must notify LetsLocum and the affected other party ie Client and worker or vice versa such as Locum to Pharmacy. Cancellations outside a 28-day timeframe may be subject to a cancellation fee of £20 per session payable to LetsLocum, this is to act as a deterrent to prevent abuse of our platform, If shifts are booked far in advance, make sure to keep your diary up-to-date, we provide syncing to Google calendar and email/txt notifications to aid this, users are reminded to behave in a manner that is professional. If the cancelling party does not notify the affected party or LetsLocum, the cancellation fee maybe increased to £200 per booking as a penalty, 50% of which will go to the other affected party. Due to the interruption of the Pharmacy’s contracted hours, which may lead to them getting a fine from the NHS of up to £10,000. It is imperative that cancellations are done ASAP and ourselves and the affected party informed immediately, Cancellations should be kept to an absolute minimum to prevent any negative impact on users involved and your user profile. LetsLocum shall bear no liability for any loss or damage arising from said cancellation

 

“Short Notice Cancellation Service Fee” This is a fee that is payable of a booking, which is cancelled at short notice on the basis of less than 24hours. For Pharmacy Clients the minimum fee will be that of the agreed booking fee depending on the pharmacy clients plan. The affected worker whose booked services are cancelled may without limitation retain rights to seek compensation or damages from the Client. LetsLocum are in no way responsible for these situations and you are urged to speak to your insurers if advice is needed. For Workers/Locums unless there are any extenuating circumstances, that will be discussed with said party, they may incur a cancellation fee starting from £100, this is to act as a deterrent to prevent abuse of our platform for last minute changes of mind, it is paramount that Workers only apply for shifts in places that they can commute to prevent such unprofessional whims to cancel.

 

“Disputes”   A disagreement between Users and or parties such as a Pharmacy client and locum pharmacist. If any such disputes occur in respect of the inadequate services or performance of a worker such as negligence dishonesty, misconduct or lack of skills, this is solely between both the affected parties and to the fullest extent permitted by law we accept no loss or liability and we encourage for such situations to be resolved amicably and strongly suggest looking at feedback of applicants.

 

“Loss”           Any demand, contribution, claim, action, proceeding, liability, loss, damage, costs, expenses, tax, national insurance contributions (to the extent permitted by law) and charges and any related penalties, fines or interest whatsoever whether founded in statute, contract, tort or otherwise made or brought against or incurred (including without limitation all losses, liabilities and costs incurred as a result of defending or settling any claims).
