‘Solution-focused approaches’ webinar scheduled for GPs

GPs can learn about ‘solution-focused’ working in general practice at a free NASGP event next month.

Former consultant child and adult psychiatrist Dr Jonathan Prosser will present on using solution-focused approaches in general practice on Thursday 3 November, 1-1.45pm.

Dr Prosser was a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist for 23 years in the Portsmouth area, before taking up a new clinical leadership role in digital transformation in the NHS. He has spoken and taught extensively on Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, with its wide applications in almost any arena of human interaction when somebody wants something from someone else.

The event is the latest in a series of NASGP’s lunchtime webinars for GP locums, held on the first Thursday of every month.

In September Dr Helen Garr, clinical lead at NHS Practitioner Health, presented on signs and symptoms of burnout in GPs, and how GP locums can prevent burnout at work.

Watch the videos of our past speakers included Dr Tony Downs on skin cancer and Dr Tina Peers on menopause.

Join our event on Thursday 3 November

We'll send you the link in a reminder on the day.

"I fell into a salaried role post-CCT, so faced with an unexpected relocation to a completely new area of the country the thought of GP locuming was incredibly daunting.

The assistance I have received from NASGP has been invaluable. I have received excellent and patient admin support when setting up my LocumDeck account. I have enjoyed the monthly chambers meetings I have attended: this made locuming feel far less isolating.

I have easily found plentiful work and am grateful for the invoicing and pension forms being taken care of – this gives me time to focus on the clinical work or make the most of precious days off.

With the support of NASGP Locum Chambers I have filled my diary working in a variety of practices in my new area, and have now joined one practice I enjoyed locuming at on a salaried basis while I continue to do some locum work on top using LocumDeck."
