I’m an established GP locum with work at regular practices. Why should the practices I currently work at pay a booking fee?

The booking fee covers the cost of providing practices with a LocumDeck account through which they can transparently see your real-time bookable availability. The speed and convenience of being able to make an online booking with you in full possession of all the information about your credentials, terms, work schedule and pay rates that you have chosen to show them is game-changing. And practices get other time and cost saving benefits from LocumDeck - managing invoices and pension forms online; posting free job adverts; posting availability requests; access to an online Locum Induction Pack. The only fee the practices are charged for access to all these services is a per session booking fee which is designed to reflect their level of use of the platform. The fee is a fraction of what a practice would be charged to find locums via an agency. And given that a practice could book multiple sessions with you - all on your own terms and according to your own schedule - in one click, they are saving on the administrative costs of arranging work which can involve back and forth communications on agreeing terms and checking compliance documents.
