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 started working as a locum GP in January this year and NASGP have been invaluable in helping to co-ordinate my bookings and organise all the administrative aspects of sessional work which can be complex and time consuming. Their client support is outstanding and they have always resolved any queries promptly and personally. They care about the service they provide and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any sessional GPs who want to minimise time spent on administration and focus on providing patients with high quality care."
