About the East Berkshire Locum Chambers initiativeEast Berkshire Locum Chambers is an initiative developed by the NASGP with F-WAM, with funding for a pilot provided by Frimley ICS, to offer local GP locums the opportunity to work together as small independent groups under a shared administrative and clinical governance structure, to better support NHS GP practices across the area. The funding enables us to offer the services of the chambers at no cost to practices or locums for the one year duration of the pilot. Using NASGP's LocumDeck Chamber platform and supported by a Chamber Manager, chamber members can publish their availability and personal terms to local NHS GP practices, who in turn are able to request and book sessions with them instantly, bypassing traditional time consuming and costly methods of finding and booking locums.
Over and above instantly booking sessions against personal work patterns and pay rates, East Berkshire Locum Chambers offers practices and locums additional benefits including:
- Automated invoicing, pension forms & book-keeping - significantly reduced admin time for practices and GP locums
- Induction and Information Portal - improved speed to competence for GP locums and improved quality of experience for patients
- AppraisalAid - significantly reduced admin time for GPs with access to quality improvement and feedback tools
LocumDeck saves me and the practices I use time and energy. It is so easy to invoice, keep a log of mileage, expenses and other earnings for example. It is so easy to provide my accountant with all the necessary info at the end of the tax year. Booking sessions and recording T&Cs is made more simple using LocumDeck. I would highly recommend to any locum GPs out there.
