GPs in Suffolk and Essex get funded NASGP membership

GP locums have been offered a range of services for the next two years, thanks to the support of Suffolk and North East Essex Training Hub.

The local organisation has partnered with NASGP to offer fully-funded NASGP membership to all GP locums working in practices across Suffolk and North East Essex.

GPs in neighbouring Hertfordshire and Essex can also take advantage of fully-funded membership.

NASGP also runs partnerships with Hampshire and the Isle of Wight ICSBerkshire Oxfordshire and West Buckinghamshire ICS, Frimley ICS and Gloucestershire ICS to offer similar support to local GPs.

GPs who want to work in Suffolk and North East Essex qualify for fully-funded use of LocumDeck. When a GP confirms just one in-person session at any participating local practice on LocumDeck we automatically give them NASGP Membership Plus, and waive local booking fees.

Dr Richard Fieldhouse, NASGP chair, wrote: “It’s really great to be rolling out fully-funded NASGP membership – and full-free use of LocumDeck – to all GP practices and GPs to another ICB.

“It’s been our dream now for over 25 years to bring about significant change in the GP workforce whereby GP locums are truly recognised as integral to patient care.

“With the support that Suffolk and North East Essex ICB are providing in partnership with NASGP, we’re 100% confident that local GPs will soon benefit from using LocumDeck and join our new GP Locum Chambers in the area.”

"I am so glad and grateful for being a member of NASGP's BOB Locum Chambers. I started with them in a critical period of my career as I was a newly-qualified GP, looking for work in a new area. NASGP chair Dr Richard Fieldhouse and Membership Support Manager Ali Lewis's help was a godsend. They introduced me to locum work in a friendly and kind manner, provided valuable support and excellent service through the ever-improving LocumDeck and NASGP website. NASGP also helped me funnelling down all the job offers I received through my locum work until I recently agreed for a salaried position in a GP practice that I love working at. "
