March ‘biggest month ever’ for LocumDeck bookings, NASGP reports

The NASGP saw the highest ever number of GP locum bookings on its booking system, LocumDeck, last month.

The record figures follow months of record growth on the platform.

Bookings in March were even higher than February, which broke previous records.

We saw 23% more Instant Books in March 2021 compared with the month before – and more than double the numbers in March 2020.

LocumDeck has seen steady month-on-month growth since November, and forecasts another month of growth once April ends. Although bookings slowed in November during the second lockdown, there was consecutive growth in Instant Bookings in September and October 2020, and a healthy increase in use of Instant Book through May, June and July.

"I have been working with NASGP as the main source of income since graduating. I can't recommend them more highly for newly-graduated GPs. They helped me with setting my terms and conditions and they even arranged a tutorial session about EMIS, as the system was new to me.

LocumDeck is a great help when it comes to organising sessions, pension forms and invoices for tax purposes.

NASGP was particularly supportive during the Covid-19 period. It recognised the effect it had on locum work, temporarily waived the already small fee on sessions and were keen on getting the members together in regular video meetings.

I'm a satisfied member of NASGP. "
