• The NASGP is the independent national membership organisation for sessional GPs

  • "...it's wonderful that GP locums now have a voice and are seen as a vital part of the medical workforce."

  • We recognise the importance of every GP in general practice.

  • Our aim is to eliminate professional isolation and enforced underperformance.

  • So we created Practeus - the home for sessional GPs.

  • Practeus includes LocumDeck; nails your invoicing, pension forms and bookings.

  • Practeus also includes Spip; the home of practice-specific information, built for locums and all other practice staff.

  • Join us now for support, and to become part of Practeus.

  • "...I have been a member of the NASGP for 18 months and find the support and advice invaluable..."

  • "I regret not having joined earlier!!!"

  • Coming soon - flexible Locum Chambers in and around Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West. Developed in association with NASGP and powered by LocumDeck. Read more.

Welcome to the NASGP

Supporting sessional GPs to improve patient care

Founded in 1997, the NASGP is run by a group of GP locums on the basis that all patients have a right to receive the same high standards of care from all GPs. So all GPs need to be equally recognised and enabled to deliver the same level of care at every GP encounter.

This core belief was enshrined in the first line of our Code of Good Practice, 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, and have happy, long careers as GPs taking our rightful place as the valuable part of the GP workforce we truly are.

As part of NASGP’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

Connecting GP locums with all the things we need to keep in the loop and thrive as GPs: colleagues, information and practices. It's led by the NASGP and shared with practices to help us all find each other and work well together.

It comes free with NASGP membership, and gives you access to NASGP's Standardised Practice Information Portal (Spip) and LocumDeck.

You can access Practeus when you sign in to the NASGP website, or from anywhere where you see the Practeus logo.

Locuming perfected

LocumDeck facilitates the direct interaction between GP locums and practices, reducing the work of managing bookings, and making administrative hassles melt away. At full power, there's even the option of Instant Book.



“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.”
Dr Paul Riley, Locum GP, May 2017

Standardised Practice Information Portal (Spip)

GP locums and practices can all be part of creating and sharing consulting room level information

Where LocumDeck helps get GP locums into practice, Spip welcomes and inducts them into practice’s information ecosystem.

Spip is a secure, online platform where practices can centrally store, update and then display all of their highly localised, practice-specific information to their staff and GPs at the point of need, equipping them to manage patients safely and efficiently.

Spip includes LocumPack, pulling together Spip’s 30 most-asked questions by GP locums so that each practice has its own essential locum induction information.
