It appears that over 80% of us rate the website as average to good but plenty of helpful points for improvement highlighted, so thanks all!

The BLS session booked for Thursday 21 January 2016 is now full, but please let us know if you are still interested as we now have a waiting list and plan to have further session(s) as per demand, we will aim to have them on different days of the week to improve access for all GPs.
Just an update from GLG to say an online survey is live at the moment for you to give your feedback at
Interim anaysis has led to a change already : Now when you opt to receive email notifications, the full posting or job advert will be emailed to your inbox, so very similar to before the website was upgraded.

We thought it would be helpful to mention a few points to help you get the most out of the GLG website.
1. DISCUSSION BOARD AND EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS: Most practices advertise via the discussion board and you can opt to receive email notifications of these posts to your registered email address.
If you haven't done so already, you can turn on your notifications / alerts by going into 'My profile' > 'Discussion options' > 'Email me when discussion item posted' and choose 'yes any posting'
2. CALENDAR AVAILABILITY: Some practices opt to search for available locums by date(s). In this method, available locums are shown in a list in order of most number of relevant dates available and most recently updated calendar. Practices then can contact locums individually. Keeping your calendar up to date will maximise the chances of being contacted.
3. HELP: For more information, go to 'Help & FAQ' section under 'Home'.
4. LOG IN: If you have had problems logging in, it might be that you are unable to establish a secure connection to the server. Consider updating your existing browser or downloading an alternative browser. Firefox and Google chrome appear to work better than Safari on some computers.
