Ratings and Reviews
What is there to complain about?
You have to wonder why all the reviews are either 5 stars or 1 star. Is it because neutral doctors using the app recognise that it is a million times better than the ‘old system’ of booking Locum shifts (old being about 9 months ago!)? Could all the 1 star reviews be coming from rival app developers or the locum agencies which are now dying out fast? I don’t know but from my perspective this app, although it had some teething problems at the beginning, is fantastic. The new update integrating your shifts with your calendar was the biggest on my wish list and they did it! Bravo guys, I hope you expand to the whole country so I can use you when I have to move on from London.
This app is a life saver!
Doing locums can’t be easier. I wish all hospitals in the Uk join this app. You can easily look for available shifts, send questions and they will reply shortly on the same day. No papers or timesheets, just ask your consultant to sign it with their finger! And you always get paid on the following week! No hassle. Great job. Well done guys!
The app is terrible. Twice all of my past shifts have just disappeared. It does not work well at all; eg when you go on to the calendar it keeps flicking back and forward - so annoying. It is very slow. It takes ages to update shifts once they’ve been changed. And the patronising spiral timer just tops it all off. I do not believe the other reviews for this are real - I don’t know one user who has had a good thing to say about it
