NORTHAMPTON, England, September 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

My Locum Choice, a healthcare recruitment company in the pharmacy industry, now plans to launch its fundraising campaign via Invesdor - UK/Europe Crowd Funding Platform. Additional resources will help the company reach majority of healthcare business owners and professionals, by providing them access to their unique platform to fulfil their temporary staffing needs.

Recently, Mitesh, the Operations Director announced the launch of their fund raising campaign on all social media websites, including Facebook, twitter, and LinkedIn. Working in the pharmacy industry for two years, My Locum Choice now wants to spread its services with enhanced quality and structure. The company aims to serve other healthcare industries, like optometry, dentistry, medicine (encompassing GP's and Nurses) and finally the NHS Hospital Trusts.

My Locum Choice is an online platform that helps pharmacy owners find temporary pharmacists (Locums). The pharmacy owners often have to face emergencies in times of sickness and holiday cover. It's difficult to get temporary pharmacists of a good quality to replace them when needed. Through direct searches networks are smaller and finding temporary pharmacists through an agency is very costly. According to a research, agency costs £15-£40 per locum per shift.

" Looking at this problem and having experienc ed it ourselves as managers and locums, we developed a platform where locums can create profiles stating their desired places of work, capabilities, accreditatio ns and work history. Locums can state their availability using their online calend ar. Pharmacy owners also have a profile and calendar stating the days they need the l ocums and the desired qualities they expect in them. Our platform help ' s pharmacy owners find locums according to their needs by using robust algorithms to find the be st fit, that can cost them just £7 finder ' s fee per shift. " - Miraj Patel, CEO.

My Locum Choice feels it has arisen at the right time where there is currently a plan to implement £22bn worth of efficiencies in the NHS (over expenditure primarily due to excessive agency fees to source workers). They aim to extend their service with an easily replicable platform, but the company lacks funds to bring its business to a larger scale.

" Our platform can deal with locum staff as well as branching out to other sectors. Yet the MVP currently operating needs revamping and our personnel requirements need to increase. " - Mitesh Shah, Operations Director.

The CEO is confident that with fundraising and their strong advisory team the system will prove valuable in other healthcare areas, saving money for the NHS.
