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.

"LocumDeck does everything you want it to do in an instant and with audit trails.

I absolutely love the facility for receiving Locum's invoices and the facility for signing the Pension Forms electronically and they are then instantly sent with an audit trail! It is fabulous!

You are notified the moment a Locum GP adds availability which is just fantastic, I spend a lot of time just chasing agencies to see if they have availability, so to be notified the moment availability is advertised is a new concept and very welcome! I have no hesitation in recommending LocumDeck - it has already eased my workload!"
