GP locum appointed as CCG chair

24th December 2014 by NASGP

Dr Kevin Hill has been appointed to the role of chairman of South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, and will take up this position on January 1. He has been a member of the Governing Body since the CCG came into existence in April 2013, and is a locum GP working for several local surgeries, and has also been a GP partner.

Working as a locum GP places GPs in an ideal position to take on senior roles in CCGs. Leaving aside the freedom and flexibility that locuming provides, there’s also the huge insight gained from working in multiple practices, across a broad area, gaining experience with alternative providers and bringing this experience to fellow commissioners.

"I have been a member of the NASGP for the past nine years and have found the advice and support offered invaluable. NASGP passionately champion for safe and fair working conditions for locums, which is crucial in an age of increasing medical litigation.

LocumDeck is a must for every locum who just wants to get on with the job that they were trained to do."
