Comprehensive Care general practices now use Beefound – an online locum matching service for doctors and nurses to provide temporary cover for practices when in need.

BeeFound is an online and mobile platform that connects locum GPs and nurses with practices in need of cover. It has revolutionised the locum/practice relationship by providing instant search results and immediate confirmation of availability. It enables practices to ‘tag’ preferred locums,it’s free for locums to sign up and practices can book locums without incurring expensive recruitment or agency fees.

Developed in the UK, Pegasus Health introduced Beefound to New Zealand in 2017.  Comprehensive Care is the first PHO in Auckland to offer the service to practices.

Our practices told us how challenging it is to find locum cover, particularly for smaller practices who feel the pressure to continue to operate even when their own staff are sick or on leave.

If you are a GP, nurse, nurse practitioner or enrolled nurse locum, you can join BeeFound for free, and start matching your available times to practices who need you.
