We’re your friendly Optom locum agency
A good Optom locum agency is hard to come across nowadays, a bit like identifying macular oedema in a 70-year-old patient with pinprick pupils. They are especially more challenging to spot if you are a novice, and everything can seem a blur. But don’t allow yourself to be dazzled by the bombardment of various different locum agencies, as we have everything you require in your journey as a locum Optom.
Short sighted locum agencies
Whether you are locuming part time or full time, the most important thing you need to consider is the locum agency that you choose. Your locum agency has to have sufficient work available for you, in the required field of your choice. In the case of Optoms, that’s either in the typical high street practices, be they independents or multiple chains, domiciliary based work, or hospital settings. Gone are the days locum agencies would frantically call up Optoms on the day for emergency shifts. It is always best to pick-out a locum agency that lets you plan months in advance, and more importantly has work available for you in advance. My Locum Choice, lets you do just that, giving you availability to book in work months ahead.
Organ-eyes your locum life
As a locum Optom you don’t need the unnecessary stress and burden of constantly worrying over when your next shift will appear, but with our innovative, My Locum Choice – Optical App, shifts appear right in front of your eyes, and it only takes seconds to book them.
We are innovators in making life easier for healthcare professionals, need proof? Check out our My Locum Choice – Pharmacy App, which is making the lifes of 1000’s of locum pharmacists easier.
Our My Locum Choice – Optical App helps you keep organised and on top of your schedule, with our optimised notifications and diary feature. All booked shifts are saved and are easily accessible to view, not only that, but any invitations you receive to work from practices are also available to view. It could not be simpler.
You are also in total control of your working schedule and can choose exactly where, and when to work. You can set your preferences by filtering for rates, companies and location. Ever wanted to know what the locum placement is like, before working there? Well, that’s another handy feature we’ve incorporated within the App, giving you greater choice in managing where to work. You can now access all the relevant information of the practices you will be working at including staff levels, computer systems, lunch breaks, rates, and mileage.
The App has built-in functionality allowing you to upload compliance documents, which can then be approved directly by practice owners and companies. Earnings can now be tracked seamlessly through the App, and when you receive a payment, invoices can even be marked off easily.
An App with a map
One of the concerns locum Optoms often tell us, is navigating from their home address to their locum placement. But that’s been taken care of too. As good as a corneal topographer, our App gives you access to a detailed map, allowing you to get to your locum placement hassle-free. That means you can plan your route, well in advance, and leave plenty of time to get to your locum placement. It’s as easy as that.

Mariyah Mahmood, an Optom of 3 years told us: “I found the App extremely useful and easy to navigate, it’s made my working life a lot easier. I love the various features detailing testing times, type of records, parking availability, and there’s even an emergency shift option where you can negotiate rates. It was great to know the system that I would be using before coming into practice. Booking shifts has never been easier, it really is the best locum app for Optoms out there.”
