After your shift
With Lloyds payment is automatic, locums need to ensure that their Venloc account and Locate a Locum account match to ensure no double bookings or errors.
No invoice required
Payments will be processed via BACS within 14 days
Once received by Lloyds setup will take roughly a week and when set up the Locum will then be provided with an LD number (Locum Dispenser) for accessing the EMTA system.
EMTA is the platform used for dispensers to access things such as their pay, shifts worked etc.
Depending on the query, Locums can contact either the Helpdesk on 0333 577 2155 or the Lloyds rota team on 0247 6625 205.
If the query is regarding a missing or late payment, please contact the Helpdesk.
