If you live in a part of the UK where GPnetworks does NOT currently operate, not to worry – together, we can get our network and the accompanying web-based system up and running in no time.
AND there are big benefits for any practice or group of practices that help to establish GPnetworks in their area!
At this time an annual subscription to the GPnetworks system is £150 – for unlimited use. This means find/request/book as many locums as you like for as many sessions as you like, at no extra cost. Deal directly with the GPs and pay only their hourly/daily rates and no more on top!
Any practice helping to establish GPnetworks in a new area is eligible for a full years FREE subscription! This is also true for groups of practices.
This offer means that it is risk free for practices to setup and trial GPnetworks in their area.
The key to creating a network in your area is to have more than 15 practices registering at the same time.
A GP uploads their T&C’s to their profile
When a practice requests a GP via the system, and the GPs accepts the request, the T&C’s are attached to the email notification to the practice.
Note, an acceptance is not a confirmed session – the practice still has the option to confirm or cancel accepted requests. this means the practice can review those T&Cs before confirming a session
hope this clears it up
On this support system, other articles deal with the basic logic of the request process.
This Q&A looks at the issues of cancellation and first come first served when booking sessions.
For example, on 29th I accepted a request from practice A in the morning and practice B in the afternoon. But I had also been requested by practice C for the whole day.
When I accept the requests from practice A and B, does practice C automatically get sent a message declining them? (As at this point their request disappears from my GP Networks).
Almost. The logic outlined above is true but relates to when session requests that you have accepted are Confirmed by a practice – this is when a session becomes effectively locked and disappears for all other employers availability calendars
At this point another practice cannot request you or a practice with an outstanding request will get a declined notification and be unable to continue with the booking process with you for that session
