This guide will tell you how to set up your account on Lantum (formerly Network Locum) with a few tips on how to make your profile as attractive as possible to practice managers.
In order for you to start connecting with practice managers, you need to create your clinical profile by uploading key documents that are reviewed by our Clinical Governance team who are overseen by our Head of Clinical Governance, Dr Belinda Coker.
In order to get approved, there are a series of documents which you must add to your profile. These are:
- Up to date CV
- A scan or good quality photo of your Passport
- CRB/DBS Check (Dated within 3 years)
- Medical Indemnity Cover
To start uploading documents, log into your account and click the 'upload documents' button on your profile.
On your Clinical Documents page, you'll see a list of documents that you need to get approved and further documents you can upload to enhance your profile.
Next to the names of the document, click 'upload' then upload the appropriate document by either dragging and dropping from your folder or upload from your computer.
Once you've uploaded your documents, the Clinical Governance team will either approve or reject them. You will receive email updates on your documents. If they're rejected, the email will state the reason why.
When all four of your documents have been approved, the Clinical Governance team will check the National Performers List and the GMC register to confirm your status on both registers.
If you're on the National Performers List as a 'registered GP with a license' and your GMC record is clear, your profile will be approved and you will receive an email immediately and start applying for sessions instantly.
Top tips for your profile
We also recommend uploading further documents as we find that GPs get booked into sessions quicker with the following documents:
- A photo of yourself
- Basic Life Support or Advanced Life Support certificate
- Safeguarding Children Level 3 certificate
- Safeguarding Adults certificate
- Immunisation history
You can upload them by clicking 'upload documents' and you'll see these fields under the core four documents.
When you apply for a session, the Practice Manager will be able to view your profile. We recommend adding information about yourself and your interests so the Practice Manager can find out more about you.
Here you can add in the IT systems you are fluent using, further qualifications and your spoken languages.
