"I made the transition into GP locum working at the beginning of 2022. Without the support of LocumDeck, I would have struggled to get it all organised. Ali and her team were extremely supportive and patient with me; they explained how to use it, made it flexible for my needs and allayed all fears regarding various invoicing issues.

It takes away the administrative stress away and allows you to focus on clinical work better."
