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 they’re seeing their regular GP or a GP they’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 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, 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 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
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.
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.
