Record-breaking LocumDeck bookings again for April

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.

"LocumDeck is so good and so intuitive that I am lost for words and utterly filled with glee.

It can send an email confirming the sessions that are booked and creates and emails invoices direct to the practice for you. These contain links to your beautifully laid out ‘credentials’ page with all your relevant documents, and a model contract that is all ready for you to accept or edit.

It automatically produces and sends the locum form A, and will produce locum form B. It also acts as the calendar... And it all happens automatically. It is really less than a minute to invoice and do the pension forms, with everything calculated perfectly."
