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.

"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."
