FAQ: Special Covid-19 LocumDeck session types

LocumDeck enables locums to state exactly how they want to work, and part of this is adding as many different session types as you need. Below are some examples of ‘session types’ that you can define and add your rate/pension too. Feel free to use and adapt these to completely customise your LocumDeck session types. Each session type has a 100-character limit.
