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 started using LocumDeck as one of our locums used it. It was easy to see her availability and when bookings are made I get confirmation of the booking and can view them on the calendar too. When invoices are sent, I can see it on the site, and digitally sign the pension form (this is one of the best bits!). It would be good if all locums used it, as then it would be so much easier for me to track my bookings and check their availability without emailing or texting them, waiting for a reply and then emailing back to confirm. It’s a great place for their documents to sit also. I can access it from home or my mobile which is useful as when I am not in surgery is when I usually need a locum!"
