GP locums have seen an 169% increase in bookings on LocumDeck in the first quarter of 2022, compared to last year.
In January, February and March 2022 instant bookings on LocumDeck more than doubled.
On NASGP’s LocumDeck, GP locums can post their availability on a practice-by-practice basis.
GP practices can ‘Instant Book’ GP locums for locum sessions at no additional cost.
NASGP’s LocumDeck is free for practices to use and join. There is no booking fee for GP practices – NASGP is not an agency.
Dr Richard Fieldhouse, NASGP chair, said: “It is thrilling to be part of an organisation that is being trusted by more and more GPs and practices to support their livelihoods and businesses, helping balance their livelihoods and careers.
“We fully expect these figures to continue rising, and are hugely grateful to all our colleagues for the faith and trust they have invested in us over these last 25 years.”
