Data collected by C+D’s annual Salary Survey in 2023 this week revealed that the average hourly rate for locums across Great Britain was £31.67 – down from £33.30 the previous year.

Click the play button on the interactive chart below to discover how the average locum rate in each local area has changed between 2020 and 2023, according to data from the Salary Survey.

Then scroll down to compare how much locum rates have decreased, as well as locums' ability to find work and rate dissatisfaction levels across regions in Great Britain.











For this feature, C+D analysed the responses of 206 locum pharmacists. C+D did not have enough data from Northern Ireland for it to be statistically relevant, so data from the country is not included.

The C+D Salary Survey 2023 ran between October 27 2023 and January 8 2024 and was completed by a total of 1,261 pharmacists and pharmacy staff.
