What is Lantum?
Lantum is a workforce platform with a set of tools to help you manage your vaccine workforce, from GPs and nurses to receptionists, admin and marshalls.
Getting to know Lantum
Before you start to post vaccine shifts on the platform, here are some user guides which will help you understand how to get the most out of Lantum.
Available features and meanings
To help you understand more about how you can use the Lantum product, below is more insight into some of the features we offer.
What are 'cover rules'?
Cover rules allow you to post a shift to multiple staff types who are able to complete (“cover”) that shift.
For example, If you are posting a shift to ‘vaccinators’, cover rules allow this shift to be seen, and applied for, by GP’s, Practice Nurses etc. If cover rules were not in place, these shifts would not be seen by multiple staff types.
Cover rules are set on a per-site basis and are set up, and managed, by your Launch or Customer Success Manager.
What does 'skip governance' mean?
When a locum GP signs up to Lantum, they must upload a CV, a DBS certificate and a copy of their passport. Lantum carries out document checks and database checks to ensure they are fully licensed to practise as a GP. A locum GP cannot apply for a shift until they have been approved.
However, some healthcare organisations choose to manage this governance process internally for non-GP staff. Skip governance means a staff member can apply to shifts at their allocated practice without having to upload any documents at all to Lantum.
However, when a skip governance clinician signs up, the document section on Lantum is still visible to clinicians. It is important to communicate with any skip governance staff signing up, that they do not need to upload documents.
How do 'rate rules' work?
Rate rules allow different rates to be paid to staff types working the same shift.
For example, it allows a practice nurse working a vaccinator shift to be paid £40/hour, but an HCA working a vaccinator shift to be paid £30/hour.
Rate rules are set up by your Launch or Customer Success Manager, please speak with them if you have any requirements.
What does 'salaried' staff mean?
Salaried staff refers to a relationship set by Lantum between a clinician and a practice which means Lantum does not handle payments for that staff member and that site.
Instead, shifts and their costs are added to the ‘salaried timesheets CSV’ which can be downloaded and sent to your relevant payroll team.
