C&P Flexible Locum Staff Bank

Last updated Thursday 15th June 2023

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Training Hub have commissioned Lantum since August  2021 to provide a flexi bank service for practices and clinical staff in general practice.

We have received the following statement from Lantum regarding the publicised potential security alert affecting doctors registered prior to 2016. They have advised us that they have contacted affected individuals by email. Any queries are being directed to the following contact email address: support@lantum.com

“We have been alerted to the existence of a potential vulnerability relating to historic data held on an old website “Network Locum” that has been out of use since 2016. We were able to take action to ensure that the data was fully secured and made inaccessible. The data includes detailed personal information about healthcare professionals that have used our services in the past, and we have advised those potentially affected to take precautions to protect their identity. While this data may have been accessible to unauthorised individuals, there is currently no indication that data has in fact been accessed and no reason to suspect that this is the case. We are, however, treating this matter as a potential data breach and will continue to liaise with any individuals who may be affected should more information be revealed by our investigations. The data in question relates to documents uploaded between 2014 and 11th September 2016. This data was stored on an old version of the Lantum platform “Network Locum” that is no longer live which Lantum migrated away from as part of an upgrade in September 2016. We would stress that since 2016, we have been operating on a completely different and highly secure platform, which conforms to the latest UK government approved and international security standards and undergoes regular testing. So there are no grounds for any concern regarding security of information that has been provided to Lantum since 2016. We have informed the regulator and have brought in specialist privacy and cyber consultants to investigate further and advise on any additional steps we may need to take. We will update you as soon as we know more. If we determine that it is likely that your information was in fact affected by a data breach, we will provide an explanation of the potential consequences and advice on steps to mitigate those consequences. Our Data Protection Officer is Gary O’Connor and our support team can be contacted at support@lantum.com if you have further questions.

Best wishes, Melissa Morris (CEO) and Dr Ishani Patel (Co-founder) Lantum”


CPTH are working in partnership with Lantum to deliver a flexible working pool for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough ICS.

Lantum is the UK’s leading digital staffing platform for primary care, connecting hubs and practices with clinical staff to fill rota gaps, including vaccinator shifts at local vaccination hubs. This platform will allow managers to post unfilled shifts, while our community of clinicians can search and apply for those shifts, all in one central location.

Launched initially for GPs, Nurses and Advanced Nurse Practitioners, this new digital platform for Cambridgeshire & Peterborough will be rolled out to include all staff needed to run General Practice in the future.


Sign up to the new digital staff bank to work directly with practice managers and be notified when sessions are posted, from your smartphone or computer, so you stay in control of your own schedule.

What are the benefits for me?

  • It’s free! No agency or sign-up fee with basic onboarding requirements (up to date CV, DBS and passport)
  • Cast your net wider – easier to book local work in your local area
  • Book work instantly – update profiles, set availability, use job search filters and receive notification that match skills and preferences
  • Quick payments – Raise invoices to go direct to practice. Or if you have our own software or already have a relationship with the practice, timesheets can be produced instead. Timesheets approved and stored online.
  • Digitise your diary – view your booked jobs and availability, anytime, anywhere


Build trusted relationships with practices:

  • Make it easy to see sessions from your favourite practices, by following them on the app.
  • Practices can request you for specific shifts, based on your availability.
  • Communicate with practices directly via Lantum’s messaging centre.

Additional Information/FAQs:

  • Pay rates are between the practice and the locum (this includes nurses/ANPs as well as GPs, and will soon include other staff groups as well)
  • Different shift types can be listed – including remote working for those who can support in different ways
  • Optional: Save time chasing payments using Lantum’s next-day payment feature, Rocketpay*, at a charge of 1.5% on earnings. (RocketPay is an additional optional service that you can sign up to but you are not tied to using this)
