Prof Tony Avery and MPS to speak at NASGP event

Professor Tony Avery and Dr Caroline Osborne-White will lead sessions as part of Guidelines 2023’s NASGP stream.

The event takes place 21-22 November at London’s ExCel.

Dr Avery, National Clinical Director Prescribing and former lead on the PRACtICe study (2012) and PINCER trial (2009), will focus on common challenges for GP locums and salaried GPs around errors, polypharmacy and complex prescribing.

Dr Osborne-White will advise on the role of the indemnifier for sessional GPs, and specific challenges around confidentiality and third-party disclosure, record-keeping and follow-up, and complaints after leaving a practice.

Dr Richard Fieldhouse, chairing the stream, will launch the programme with his talk ‘We’re paratroopers, we’re supposed to be surrounded’.

Both days are available at £29 to NASGP members and the venue is easily accessible by Tube. Login for the discount link.

Dr Fieldhouse said: “Having attended as a guest at last year’s Guidelines Live, I’m thrilled to be hosting NASGP’s own three sessions on the final day.

“Tony has presented before at an NASGP conference, demonstrating a clear understanding of the conditions in which GP locums work and prescribe. And talks from our medicolegal colleagues are always well received.

“I will be there too, helping with our own stand in the exhibition area with my two colleagues Dr Sara Chambers and Communications Director Ellie Broughton, so do please come and say hello to us!”

"I fell into a salaried role post-CCT, so faced with an unexpected relocation to a completely new area of the country the thought of GP locuming was incredibly daunting.

The assistance I have received from NASGP has been invaluable. I have received excellent and patient admin support when setting up my LocumDeck account. I have enjoyed the monthly chambers meetings I have attended: this made locuming feel far less isolating.

I have easily found plentiful work and am grateful for the invoicing and pension forms being taken care of – this gives me time to focus on the clinical work or make the most of precious days off.

With the support of NASGP Locum Chambers I have filled my diary working in a variety of practices in my new area, and have now joined one practice I enjoyed locuming at on a salaried basis while I continue to do some locum work on top using LocumDeck."

Dr Joanne Wright, GP, Essex
