Still in training? Join us for free.
As GPs ourselves, we know how important any kind of help is while you’re GP training. This is especially true if you’re planning to be a GP locum.
The best way we can help you is by offering free NASGP membership, giving you a head start during VTS as you prepare for the next stage in your career.
You’ll benefit from a range of services and support, including extensive online resources, discussion forums and our admin tool, LocumDeck. And after your CCT date, we’ll continue your free membership for three more months while you get established. Membership is just £12/month after that.
What newly-qualified GPs say about us
"I am so glad and grateful for being a member of NASGP's BOB Locum Chambers. I started with them in a critical period of my career as I was a newly-qualified GP, looking for work in a new area with a new virus hardly hitting the world and the jobs market.
NASGP chair Dr Richard Fieldhouse and Membership Support Manager Ali Lewis's help was a godsend. They introduced me to locum work in a friendly and kind manner, provided valuable support and excellent service through the ever-improving LocumDeck and NASGP website. With the help of the chambers, I received a face to face tutorial on Emis (I trained on SystmOne) and my online profile was promoted on a growing network of GP practices throughout Buckinghamshire, Oxford and Berkshire.
I was able to work in different GP practices with different staff and patient demographics, massively increasing my clinical experience, resilience and communication skills.
It also helped me funnelling down all the job offers I received through my locum work until I recently agreed for a salaried position in a GP practice that I love working at. "

"Going from being a trainee to being a GP can be a really difficult transition. Taking on the administration associated with things like locum work can make that even more difficult.
Ali from LocumDeck showed me how to use their tool to simplify and automate the invoicing and locum form process to save me time and energy. With the free one-year membership for new GPs this was a real no-brainer that meant I could spend more time on the things that really matter, and less time filling in paperwork.
I can't thank Ali enough for her help and the time she has saved me."
Dr Jeeves Wijesuriya, GP, London
"Joining NASGP's Locum Chambers in Essex after CCT has been a fantastic decision for me. The Chambers structure provides support with my locum work as well as a peer support network with regular meetings.
The Chambers support also extends to support with complaints when these occur. This is an amazing benefit that helps to minimise the professional isolation that can come with being a locum.
The Instant Book feature within LocumDeck makes arranging sessions easy. Whilst getting things set up initially does take a bit of work, this eventually pays off and the return on this initial time investment is impressive. New features are always being added based on feedback from members. "
Dr Shanil Shivji, GP, Essex
"As a newly-qualified CCT and a GP moving to a new region post-CCT, I found LocumDeck and the NASGP to be very helpful. LocumDeck has been useful: Ali Lewis helped me to set myself up, get in touch with practices and book sessions, and also helped me chase payments. The NASGP itself, providing peer support and advice, has also been very good. I would certainly encourage my colleagues to join."
