Welcome to the NASGP
Supporting sessional GPs to improve patient care
NASGP was founded over 20 years ago by a group of GP locums on the basis that every patient has the right to expect the same level of care from every GP encounter, whether theyâ€™re seeing their regular GP or a GP theyâ€™ve never met before. Therefore all GPs need to be equally recognised and enabled to deliver this.
This core belief was enshrined in the first line of ourÂ Code of Good Practice,Â and it shapes all the work the NASGP has done since, from initiating the campaign to extend NHS pensions to GP locums, developing the concept of GP locum chambers, to lobbying to raise the recognition and professional status of GPs who work as locums.
We specialise in taking our grassroots experience as sessional GPs, and that of our members, and turning this into positive ideas, resources, leadership and practical tools to support our members to engage well with practices, have happy, long careers as GPs and take our rightful place as the valuable part of the GP workforce we truly are.
As part of NASGPâ€™s commitment to fostering good working relationships between practices and GP locums, we are also delighted to welcome practices as NASGP members too.
The online portal for general practice
NASGP is the home of Practeus, your gateway to a growing range of tools specifically designed for general practice, and is the embodiment of 20 years of innovation to fully enable sessional GPs to create sustainable partnerships with GP practices.
It comes free with NASGP membership, and gives you access to NASGP's Standardised Practice Information Portal (Spip) and LocumDeck.
I wanted to share with the group how AMAZINGLY GOODÂ NASGP LocumDeckÂ is!! It is so good and so intuitive that I am lost for words and utterly filled with glee.
“I started working as a locum GP in January this year and NASGP have been invaluable in helping to co-ordinate my bookings and organise all the administrative aspects of sessional work which can be complex and time consuming. Their client support is outstanding and they have always resolved any queries promptly and personally. They care about the service they provide and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any sessional GPs who want to minimise time spent on administration and focus on providing patients with high quality care.”
[NASGP’s LocumDeck] is really less than a minute to invoice and do the pension forms, with everything calculated perfectly.
“Love LocumDeck. Invoice sent for this month. Super quick and easy once set-up. Form all calculated – lovely!”Â
LocumDeckÂ really is brilliant – I’ve always relied on my own system – never put my faith in any other system – but was genuinely buzzing when I used itÂ yesterday – how easy it was to use and how many other things it does. It will significantly change and improve my invoicing and end of the month!
