The Hertfordshire and West Essex ICS and NASGP have partnered for the next two years to improve the availability of GP locums to the 134 practices in the ICS area. This initiative is financed by the Hertfordshire and West Essex ICS using Primary Care Flexible Staff Pool Funding which was allocated to each ICS by NHS England and Improvement in order to fund the provision of GP Flexible Pools.

As part of this initiative, local practice managers and partners can use LocumDeck, NASGP’s independent booking system, to book locums in or near the area to cover single sessions and long-term locum cover at no cost to themselves.

Meanwhile, local GP locums are eligible for two years’ free NASGP membership after providing locum cover for you or your neighbouring practices in the ICS.

Over 2,000 GP practices across the UK already use LocumDeck to book GP locums for free, simply and easily.

Register on LocumDeck today to start saving time and money on finding the best locums.

NASGP runs free 30-minute online demos every week, showing how to make the most of LocumDeck and answering questions on its tools and features.
