This is a great package for anyone setting out as a locum. It is obvious that the site has been created by working locums, because all the issues related to locums are covered.
My immediate concern having worked as a principal for 30 years, was what to charge, and how to arrive at that figure. An in-depth article covered it. My other initial priority in early 2017 was IR35 legislation, and avoiding getting caught up in it. Again the T's and C's giving flexibility to adjust to your personal situation, and based on legal advice, gives me confidence that I am operating in self-employed capacity as recognised by practices and HMRC.
The calendar for documenting future shifts, the ability to share booking information and requesting practice confirmation is brilliant in its own right. You have to use it to truly appreciate it.
Invoicing is also a dream, and the advice and management relating to locum A and B forms and billing, itself justifies the subscription.
Translating from long-term GP principal to locum requires a resetting of approach to appraisal, and that is also covered in depth.
Finally, collating information for my accountant is also structured and easily presentable, with ability to export data to spreadsheet for analysis, something which I have undertaken today, easily.
There is also a social media presence, for feedback and support.
I have just renewed my membership, a very easy decision.

I moved to using locumdeck 12 months ago and have found it makes booking sessions and invoicing super easy. The fact I can publish my availability to individual practices and have my terms of work and ‘documentation’ automatically attached gives clarity to the practice and myself.
The electronic versions of the pension forms make things even easier.
The admin team behind the scenes are responsive and helpful too.

LocumDeck is a great platform for making bookings, invoicing, expenses, handling A & B forms, and the bookkeeping side of things. When I've had problems or queries, the team has been very repsonsive. It certainly takes the headache out of the tedious parts of being a locum.

LocumDeck is an indispensable resource for GP locums. It is comprehensive, yet transparent - you can feel reassured about my bookings with the model T&Cs that it provides (significantly better than other platforms), and the support from the team behind LocumDeck to help with its day to day use has been excellent.

Locum Deck has transformed my work as a GP locum, reducing admin time and enabling easy communication with practices to confirm bookings and send invoices locum A forms. I'm still discovering all the package can do, but it is constantly being developed to improve facilities further for both locums and practices and the team respond rapidly to issues raised.

Using NASGP for all my bookings, invoicing and pension forms is the best addition to my working life.
The platform is easy and intuitive to use. It's clearly been designed well for GP locums.
Feedback I've had from PMs is that its great to have all the documents, T&Cs and booking details in one place for QCQ.
Using T&Cs has made detailing which work I will do much clearer and referable which has helped with constructive relationships with practises.
I love that the calendar updates to my phone and lap top.
And the best bit - at the end of the year I just need to click a button and all my earning and milage are ready for my accountant!
And an other best bit - is the feature that shows when a practise hasn't paid me!
Using NASGP has saved me time and money.
