NHSmail registration for GP locums in England now live

After nearly 20 years of campaigning, both by NASGP and the BMA’s GPC Sessional GP Committee, and more recently working closely with a great team of people at NHS Digital, NHSmail is being rolled out for all locums on the National Performer’s List (NPL) who don’t otherwise yet have one.

Because of the special privileges that NHSmail can give you, your application will need to be cross-referenced between your entry on the NPL and your GMC record, and emailed to your GMC-registered email address. Further upgrade work is currently being done on the NPL, so some locums may find that their application has to be delayed until the summer.

 

"I was introduced to the local locum chambers several months ago when I made a career move from partnership. I now combine salaried and locum roles. The chambers provides helpful support, leadership, advice and governance and reduces professional isolation. This combination of support reassures me and helps me provide safe and consistent care to patients within the community . There is a useful, innovative online portal - LocumDeck - which helps me access local work and which has efficient systems for reconciliation of finance including pensions. I would highly recommend joining a locum chambers for any GPs starting out in the locum world ."
