How do I cancel a shift with Clarity Locums

If you need to cancel a shift we would ask that you attempt to source an alternative locum.

If this is not possible, and the booking is outside of three working days, you can request a cancellation via the website by clicking the "Request Cancellation" button. To submit the request you will need to provide a reason for the cancellation. Once this request has been submitted your day will be canceled.

Cancellations with less than three working days' notice must be rung into the office on 01 532 5441 and followed up with an email to confirm the request.

It is your responsibility to follow the steps below to ensure your cancellation is communicated to the agency and that confirmation of cancellation is received.


Please call the office on 01 532 5441 and dial 1 for the locum team. Out of hours, please transfer to the emergency line and wait for an answer. You cannot leave a voicemail under any circumstances. You must speak with a member of staff.


Please email the staff member you spoke to in step one to confirm the cancellation. Your cancellation is only complete once you have received an email from Clarity Locums confirming your cancellation. Cancellations with less than three days' notice must be accompanied by a sick note or a full explanation of the circumstances that have led to the short notice cancellation.

Repeated short notice cancellations will result in disciplinary action against you and may result in termination of your account with Clarity Locums.
