The Locum Advantage :

Doctors doing locum work are able to concentrate on patient care and avoid much of the paperwork associated with traditional practice. In contrast, Doctors working in a full time capacity must deal daily with the challenges of administrative and management issues, including office politics. Locums are paid comparably higher rates.
