FAQ: What happens when a practice books a GP locum using Instant Book?

By enabling Instant Book, the GP locum has made a commitment to honour any booking made using Instant Book.

When a practice makes a booking:

  • The GP locum is sent a text message.
  • The locum is sent an email confirmation, copying in the practice manager and the practice’s designated booking manager (if one exists).
  • The locum’s calendar is updated with full details of the booking, and the booking is also added to the practice managers list of upcoming sessions.

It is the responsibility of the GP locum to commit to their declared availability and keep a close eye on their calendar.

"LocumDeck does everything you want it to do in an instant and with audit trails.

I absolutely love the facility for receiving Locum's invoices and the facility for signing the Pension Forms electronically and they are then instantly sent with an audit trail! It is fabulous!

You are notified the moment a Locum GP adds availability which is just fantastic, I spend a lot of time just chasing agencies to see if they have availability, so to be notified the moment availability is advertised is a new concept and very welcome! I have no hesitation in recommending LocumDeck - it has already eased my workload!"
