Purpose for this web site

records I started this web site in December 2004. I was aware that when practices required a locum they would often obtain a list from the PCT or LMC. These lists were frequently out of date with names of locums that had already left the locum scene, and names that should have been there were not. I thought it would be a good idea to have an up to date comprehensive web based list.

I discussed my thoughts with the Lancashire Local Medical Committee who thought it was a good idea. They direct new locums to my site and encourage them to add their names to the list. Of course, not all locums want to have their names added, but I think this is just about as comprehensive a list as I can get.

In 2011, I made the list a searchable database making the site more useful and this will enable the web site to increase its sphere and will eventually include the whole of the North West of England.
