Before you work your locum shift it is good practice to contact the pharmacy beforehand to introduce yourself, ask if they have any specific tasks that need to be completed and confirm that you are set up to work with them.

Before your shift

  • Please ensure your Locate a Locum profile is updated, including bank details.

  • Photographic ID – Passport / Driving licence etc. – Right to work documents would also be needed for anyone that does upload a UK passport.

  • DBS: - must be dated in the last 2 years to date if on a hard copy or the details added for the update service with the certificate number

  • Current Indemnity Insurance policy certificate (with cover for locum work)

  • Repeat Dispensing Certificate (no end date)

  • Safeguarding at minimum Level 2: for both adult and child (if CPPE, it must be dated in the last 2 years or if it’s the E – learning for health, this can be within the last 3 years)

After your shift

  • Payments are usually processed within 30 days of shift completion. You do not need to leave an invoice, as long as your bank details are updated on your profile PCT can pay you.

  • Locum dispensers MUST have 12 months - 2 years of previous qualified experience to work with PCT.
