"Prior to signing up for LocumDeck, I would have to rely on locum agencies or mutual recommendations, then do a lot of paperwork for each surgery myself. Once I signed up for LocumDeck, I just uploaded all my documents, added my availability and started getting automatic bookings. There is no need to worry about invoices any more as everything is available on LocumDeck. Ali, NASGP's Membership Support Manager, was really helpful too!"
