"I’ve done respiratory nursing clinics through Frimley ICS Primary Care Staff Bank and it was such a great experience. During my clinic I realised how valued and needed my skills are. Locuming gave me a great sense of pride and enthusiasm and I felt respected for my work. It was really easy to book and get paid too. I would recommend LocumDeck for Nurses to my colleagues."
