FAQ: How do I use Spip messaging, comments and notes?
Simple, yet powerful
Spip comes with its own messaging, comments and notes system. It’s a great way for all members of a practice – including visiting locum GPs – to share local information about service quality.
If you have any unread messages, we’ll send you an email at 2pm to let you know, allowing you to go straight to your messaging area.
Comment on this page
All users can comment on any page within any Spip they have access too – advice to colleagues, useful tips etc.
That comment will only be visible on that particular practice’s Spip. A copy is sent via the Spip’s messaging system, and the Practice can edit the comment.
Leave a personal note
Useful for Clinicians to leave a personal note about that service for themselves. Only the person who made that note can see it.
Unlike ‘comments’, personal notes will be visible in all other Spips (on that specific page) – but again, visible only to the person who created that note.
Report service issue to Practice
Great for flagging up issues to a Practice about a service, enabling them to collect and escalate these issues further to prevent them happening again.
You must never include any patient-identifiable information in these reports.
Request page update
If you’ve looked something up in Spip but couldn’t find it, or something was out-of-date or wrong, this lets the practice know.
"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. "
