Could these unemployed locums give us a call?

We were mystified by your front-page article indicating that locum doctors are bemoaning the lack of available work (GP, 21 March).

We have such difficulty finding locums that we organise our schedule on the assumption that none will be found.

Perhaps these doctors are not advertising themselves well enough.

It would be helpful to surgeries such as ours if they approached us up front with their CV, in addition to contacting the local GP training departments.

Neither of these approaches costs anything.
