Our story

My Locum Choice started in 2013 with its MVP platform. The company was created by two experienced pharmacists Miraj and Mitesh.

Over the course of 3 years the team saw amazing feedback being received around their business. From that point onwards they realised the scope to scale and replicate this model into other healthcare sectors. The issue of sourcing quality workers, matched to a contractors preferences and available on the days they need them was an issue across all of healthcare.

In 2017 My Locum Choice undertook crowdfunding with Invesdor so they could obtain the investment needed to grow their business by building a new platform and mobile app as well as increasing their personnel team.

The round took of like wildfire and the team managed to obtain above their investment target. Now they are developing their new system and have already begun to make advances into new healthcare sectors outside of Pharmacy.

The ending to the story would be My Locum Choice utilised in all sectors including the NHS and hospital trust; saving the NHS millions of pounds per year in fees.
