RCOG | Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome

  1. Most women present with abdominal pain and distention after their ‘trigger injection’.
  2. NSAIDs should be avoided as they can trigger renal failure.

"LocumDeck does everything you want it to do in an instant.

I absolutely love the facility for receiving locums' invoices and the facility for signing pension forms electronically. They are then instantly sent with an audit trail. It is fabulous!

You are notified the moment a GP locum adds availability, which is just fantastic. I spend a lot of time just chasing agencies to see if they have availability, so to be notified the moment availability is advertised is a new concept, and very welcome.

I have no hesitation in recommending LocumDeck – it has already eased my workload."
