LocumDeck hits 2,000-practice milestone as managers flock to independent locum platform

GP locums can now work with over 2,000 GP practices in the UK on LocumDeck after the independent booking system saw its total reach new heights last week.

The system’s 2000th GP practice client signed up to use the system in the first weekend of September, giving GPs and practice managers a sense of confidence ahead of autumn and winter this year.

LocumDeck already covers all practices in the UK, as locums can add a practice manually to share invoices and pension forms with them via the platform. But this milestone figure shows that a huge proportion of the UK’s practices are active LocumDeck users. (GP Online puts the total for England at  7,435 GP practices in 2017, likely much lower now).

Dr Richard Fieldhouse, GP locum and chair of NASGP, said: “LocumDeck’s power lies behind its ‘by locums, for locums’ design, facilitating locums to practise as independent self-employed contractors on their own terms, rather than as a commodity.”

"Going from being a trainee to being a GP can be a really difficult transition. Taking on the administration associated with things like locum work can make that even more difficult.

Ali from LocumDeck showed me how to use their tool to simplify and automate the invoicing and locum form process to save me time and energy. With the free one-year membership for new GPs this was a real no-brainer that meant I could spend more time on the things that really matter, and less time filling in paperwork.

I can't thank Ali enough for her help and the time she has saved me."

Dr Jeeves Wijesuriya, London
