What would happen to your practice if one of your most valuable and influential people suddenly couldn't work due to illness or injury?
Not only would you be concerned for that person's welfare, you would still have the responsibility of continuing to run your business effectively and efficiently. Regardless of the number of clients or patients you have, you still need to cover the fixed costs of your business. You may even need to find a replacement in order to continue to provide a service for your clients. However locum costs can easily mount up and put pressure on your business's finances.
Even if you are a GP practice, and are able to get reimbursed for the locum costs from NHS England, the payment is unlikely to cover the costs in full, leaving your business with a significant bill that has to be paid.
Your profitability as well as your reputation could be seriously affected if you struggle to meet your clients' or patients' needs.
