At Network Locum, part of our clinical governance requirement is to have a photo uploaded to your profile. There are a number of reasons for this.
Firstly, GPs with a photo uploaded to their profile are 30% more successful in getting the jobs they want. This is because it brings your application to life instantly for Practice Managers, and makes it easier for them to identify you on the website.
Secondly, on an online platform where you don’t introduce yourself in person to the Practice Manager, your profile is the next best thing. It’s important that your professionalism and energy shines through, and a profile completed with a picture will help Practice Managers to choose you as a reliable and professional GP.
Finally, we know that scrutiny on primary care governance is ever increasing, and we find that this is one of the quickest and easiest ways for Practice Managers to make sure that they know exactly who is going to walk through the door to do a session for them.
To update your profile and make the most of your applications, upload a photo to your profile.
