How www.locumbay.com collects personal information
Pharmacies in the United Kingdom must have a working pharmacist within their premises during its working hours, as a legal condition. When a pharmacist is off for sickness/holiday/etc., the Pharmacy must locate a suitable replacement to cover the shift where their regular pharmacist is not available. The pharmacist that works to cover shifts is referred to as a “locum.” 
This Website will enable the pharmacy to post an advertisement for the vacancy, which requires a locum pharmacist. The locum can then accept the job on offer assuming they meet all the service criteria the pharmacy wishes them to fulfill. Once the job is accepted, the locum pharmacist is required to complete the job. Once this is done, the pharmacy must pay the pharmacist the fee as agreed on locumbay.com and both parties can leave each other feedbacks on the Website. These feedbacks in turn will help both the parties to build each other’s reputation on the Website so as to be able to enter into better transactions in future.
