Deskilled in searching for childcare. What are the best websites for non-London nannies etc?

I'm panicking a bit about childcare as my incredibly wonderful nanny that I have sahred for 3 years is on sick leave for a few months. Gumtree seems to be entirely London, really. Any other recommendations? Any lovely nanny looking for work 4 afternoons a week??

www.nannyselect.co.uk I think
You could try putting postcard-style ads up in local shops/cafes. And we had a parent's noticeboard at school where we could post childcare notices.
Familiesonline takes local ads I think. And you could start a new thread on mumsnet!
(I got my last nanny through the local gumtree though - there are quite a few in our area, although nothing like as many as the London site)

As a nanny outside of London, when I was looking for jobs I used:
plus also local nanny agencies
From September 2008, CIS with luck will start listing nannies - as Childcare Act 2006 legislation requires that they provide details about all forms of childcare. However in reality I am wondering if they will actually list nannies.
