Why choose a PSL?

Operating a PSL hybrid is an ideal solution for Trusts seeking to use multiple agencies due to a large number of locum shifts or specialist requirements.

“Over the last 10 months, Holt Doctors and the LMS support team has impressed us with the high quality of customer service that we’ve received throughout, particularly the ease at which LMS was introduced and established within the Trust and with our preferred agencies. LMS is easy to navigate and the functionality provided has had an instant impact on our productivity, saving time and offering us greater transparency on the locum booking process as a whole. In particular, this has given us robust management information to enable us to understand our locum expenditure and challenge appropriately.”
