There is a good algorithm that you can print out on page 22. Remember that in BLS for a pregnant woman, you need a tilt to the left of 15°. This can be achieved by getting someone to put their knees under her right side. Remember that after 20/40, perimortem fetal delivery can save the mother’s life, so call for help early.

I’ve recommended [NASGP invoicing] to my colleague/friend who is also starting out as a locum GP.
[NASGP’s LocumDeck] is really less than a minute to invoice and do the pension forms, with everything calculated perfectly.
“Thank you for the service you have provided while I have been a member over the last few years. I have found the website and sessional magazine very helpful during my time as a locum.”
“We’ve worked with the NASGP now for over a decade, and have always been impressed with their commitment to promoting a really productive working relationship between practices and GP locums, with the ultimate aim of making sure patients receive the best care, no matter which GP they see.”
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!
“Love LocumDeck. Invoice sent for this month. Super quick and easy once set-up. Form all calculated – lovely!”
I feel strongly that sessional GPs need an organisation solely focussed on representing their interests.
I have found membership very helpful during my time as a locum and GP and would like to thank you very much.
“I am all set up and running on LocumDeck. Very impressed by how efficient and smooth it seems.”
“I have found LocumDeck to be the most helpful and invaluable resource for keeping bookings and accounts. I want to thank you for the wonderful service you provide. Many thanks once again for all the NASGP provides, and particularly for use of the excellent resource LocumDeck has proved to be – something I have recommended to many colleagues who have taken a step to locum work.”
I have decided to retire from medicine, and so from the NASGP too. You have my heartfelt thanks for being around, especially for all the useful articles in your journal, and I wish you well for the future.
I wanted to share with the group how AMAZINGLY GOOD NASGP LocumDeck is!! It is so good and so intuitive that I am lost for words and utterly filled with glee.
The info on the website really helped when I started sessional work in April and I’ll recommend you to all my appraisees starting locum/sessional GP life as I think you’re an invaluable resource for sessional GPs.
” I think the Spip and Cudos tool both have a very positive future and fulfil a real need…”
Thank you for all your support over the years.
LocumDeck really is brilliant – I’ve always relied on my own system – never put my faith in any other system – but was genuinely buzzing when I used it yesterday – how easy it was to use and how many other things it does. It will significantly change and improve my invoicing and end of the month!
Thanks for all you have done for sessional GPs, keep up the good work!
“I am delighted by the way the NASGP has grown and become such a good support group for locums and other non-principals. I have really appreciated the mailings and enjoyed attending one conference. Please keep up the good work!”
I must tell you that you have a brilliant team. I find it so convenient to ask for help and it’s always tailored to my needs. Thanks a bunch 🙂
I’ve tried simple templates or hard copies of locum packs before but find they so quickly become out of date. I like the way NASGP [Standardised Practice Information Portal] is easier to navigate and update than these paper-based systems.
“My accountant husband said that invoicing on Locumdeck was very impressive. Incredibly easy to use and intuitive – excellent piece of work!”
The quality and contents of the magazine are superb, and it’s wonderful that GP locums now have a voice and are seen as a vital part of the medical workforce.
LocumDeck (opens link in new tab, completely free for NASGP members) now includes automated Locum A and B forms for England and Wales.
“…it is so good and so intuitive that I am lost for words and utterly filled with glee.
…it can send an email confirming the sessions that are booked and creates and emails invoices direct to the practice for you. These can contain links to your beautifully laid out ‘credentials’ page with all your relevant documents…and a model contract that is all ready for y…
“I’m loving LocumDeck, it’s a great piece of software”
Thank you for many years of help and support in an increasingly difficult job as a sessional GP in the NHS.
“I started working as a locum GP in January this year and NASGP have been invaluable in helping to co-ordinate my bookings and organise all the administrative aspects of sessional work which can be complex and time consuming. Their client support is outstanding and they have always resolved any queries promptly and personally. They care about the service they provide and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any sessional GPs who want to minimise time spent on administration and focus on pro…
[NASGP invoicing] is fairly self-explanatory and having never made/sent an invoice before it’s made my life a lot easier, and made me feel reassured I hadn’t forgotten anything important.
I regret not having joined earlier!!!
“I am a newly qualified Sessional GP. I am thankful to you and your team for the splendid work you do for all of us. LocumDeck is the only platform that allows GPs to be in control and I am glad I am a member of NASGP since my Trainee days.”
“I don’t normally do this, but just to say that I thought your article at the front of the latest NASGP magazine, about clinical errors, was really excellent. Great, and very thoughtful, writing. NASGP member.”
