New contract checklist helps GP locums assess terms on salaried roles

The NASGP has published a new resource for GP locums who are considering taking a contract as a salaried GP.

The resource helps GP locums gather information in the public domain, job description and experience of working at the practice, then reveals the questions still left for the practice partners or manager to supply information about.

Questions include, ‘How is the practice owned and managed?’ and ‘What are your mandatory training costs?’.

During the pandemic many GP locums have considered taking a contract in the absence of available sessions. NASGP is a membership organisation for both GP locums and salaried GPs, and has previously published specific advice for salaried GPs, such as working as a salaried GP and the salaried GP ‘job plan’.

See the resource.

"I have been a member of the NASGP for about 18 months and find the support and advice invaluable.

It was especially helpful when I started locum work. I think I must have spent hours on the website devouring every single article as I was keen to learn all I could before I went solo. "
