FAQ: Model locum Terms and Conditions template
If you’re doing any sort of locum work as part of your portfolio career, you’ll definitely need your own personalised Terms and Conditions to help protect both you and the practice you’re working for.
NASGP’s model T&Cs has been specifically developed for NASGP members by a specialist employment law firm. It allows GP locums to not only fully adopt all its recommendations, but also to add any necessary clauses and tailor it to suit each locum’s personal needs.
You can now set your T&Cs online in NASGP’s LocumDeck.
LocumDeck’s T&Cs generator allows you to:
- Set your own cancellation sliding scale from 0 to 100% of your booked fee for 0 to 28 days in advance.
- Include your 14.38% employer’s pension contributions
- Legal employment status
- Tax status, IR35 etc
- Duties (on-call, triage etc)
- Private fees (HGV medical etc)
- Cremation fees
- Payment terms (14 days? 28 days?)
- Plus much more.
As an NASGP member, go to your T&Cs generator, choose your settings and then save. You’ll then be given a unique link, “View my TCs” which will automatically be added to your automated invoices, confirmation emails and session request emails, or you can paste the link into your own GP locum website.
As an added bonus, GP locums can update their T&Cs as often as they like on LocumDeck. Each change is saved in an archive, accessible by practices, for extra confidence.
"I have been working with NASGP as the main source of income since graduating. I can't recommend them more highly for newly-graduated GPs. They helped me with setting my terms and conditions and they even arranged a tutorial session about EMIS, as the system was new to me.
LocumDeck is a great help when it comes to organising sessions, pension forms and invoices for tax purposes.
NASGP was particularly supportive during the Covid-19 period. It recognised the effect it had on locum work, temporarily waived the already small fee on sessions and were keen on getting the members together in regular video meetings.
I'm a satisfied member of NASGP. "
