"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin – my profile, certificates, terms and conditions, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
