  • Chambers generally have a formal recruitment process which usually includes interviews thus ensuring a minimum quality standard.

    This is maintained by assisting regular feedback from practices and supporting CPD and appraisal of its members.
  • Chambers provide a single point of contact for reaching several locums.
  • Chambers ensure important information about local services and guidelines are cascaded to locums.
  • Chambers may also be able to mobilise cover for a sick locum at short notice so the practice has more protection from the inconvenience of cancelled locums.
