Locum Survey

4th May, 2021

We are seeking feedback from our Locum community to find out more about what it’s like working as a Locum in Cornwall and what we can do to support you in this role.  To do this we have developed a short survey which we would be grateful if you could complete to help us get to know more about how you work as a Locum and what additional support may benefit you.  Some suggestions include mentoring, peer support groups, access to education and training, networking sessions or CPD, but we want to hear from you.   Please take this opportunity to tell us more about working as a Locum, and share with us any thoughts, ideas, or feedback on what support would be the most valuable to you.

This survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.  Please feel free to forward on the link to this survey to any of your locum colleagues, as we would like as much feedback as possible.  Please complete this survey below by Friday 21 May 2021.
