GP locum bookings broke records again last month, with bookings on LocumDeck up 15% compared with March.
Bookings for March were LocumDeck’s biggest month ever, but April has bested them.
April is the fifth month in a row that saw record growth. Bookings grew by an average of over 25% month on month in December 2020, January, February, March and April 2021.
Now practice managers are currently booking GP locums as far ahead as October.
Demand for locums reflects demand across general practice as reported in the medical press.
Pulse reported last week that GPs consulted a record-breaking number of patients last month.
And GP Online reported that demand was up by a fifth.
