Appeal to help family of death-out-of-service locum GP

An appeal has begun to raise £100k for family of GP locum Helen Sanderson who died on Christmas eve 2014. Because Helen’s membership of the NHS pension scheme was only via her locum income, since she died outside of a period of locum cover at a practice, despite having worked booked at other practices, her family were unable to benefit from the same death-in-service benefits afforded to all other members of the NHS pension scheme.

See the NASGP’s full story from The Sessional GP magazine.

"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 providing patients with high quality care."
