Plus you'll be supporting usÂ to continue to raise the recognition and professional status of GPs who work as sessional GPs.
NASGP was founded over 20 years ago by a group of GP locums on the basis that every patient has the right to expect the same level of care from every GP encounter, whether theyâ€™re seeing their regular GP or a GP theyâ€™ve never met before. Therefore all GPs need to be equally recognised and enabled to deliver this.
This core belief was enshrined in the first line of ourÂ Code of Good Practice,Â and it shapes all the work the NASGP has done since, from initiating the campaign to extend NHS pensions to GP locums, developing the concept of GP locum chambers, to lobbying to raise the recognition and professional status of GPs who work as locums.
We specialise in taking our grassroots experience as sessional GPs, and that of our members, and turning this into positive ideas, resources, leadership and practical tools to support our members to engage well with practices, have happy, long careers as GPs and take our rightful place as the valuable part of the GP workforce we truly are.
As part of NASGPâ€™s commitment to fostering good working relationships between practices and GP locums, we are also delighted to welcome practices as NASGP members too.
