Rise in locum spending17th May 2010
Figures released by the Scottish government have revealed that spending on locum doctors has risen considerably over the last year.
The amount spent on hiring temporary doctors was £29 million in 2008/09, but this rose to £36 million in 2009. The government has set up a group to look at spending on locum staff and to create a "staff bank" so that people from within the health service could be used, instead of hiring from costly private agencies.
