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 have been working with NASGP as the main source of income since graduating. I can't recommend them more highly for newly-graduated GPs. They helped me with setting my terms and conditions and they even arranged a tutorial session about EMIS, as the system was new to me.

LocumDeck is a great help when it comes to organising sessions, pension forms and invoices for tax purposes.

NASGP was particularly supportive during the Covid-19 period. It recognised the effect it had on locum work, temporarily waived the already small fee on sessions and were keen on getting the members together in regular video meetings.

I'm a satisfied member of NASGP. "
