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.
Dr Irene Bainbridge, September 2015
I’ve recommended [NASGP invoicing] to my colleague/friend who is also starting out as a locum GP.
Christine Vickery, September 2016
“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…

” I think the Spip and Cudos tool both have a very positive future and fulfil a real need…”
Dr Amy Kerstein, March 2016
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!
Dr Kathryn Furneaux, May 2017
“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.”
"Great, and very thoughtful, writing."
“My accountant husband said that invoicing on Locumdeck was very impressive. Incredibly easy to use and intuitive – excellent piece of work!”
Dr Daphne Hazel, February 2018
I regret not having joined earlier!!!
Dr Maria Tome, December 2015
[NASGP’s LocumDeck] is really less than a minute to invoice and do the pension forms, with everything calculated perfectly.
Annette Steele, December 2016
“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!”
Dr Sarah Steed, July 2018
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!
Dr Sally Watkins, May 2017
Thanks for all you have done for sessional GPs, keep up the good work!
Dr Judith KingMember since 2000Walsall
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.
Dr Helen Rutherford, September 2016
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.
Dr Amy Kerstein, March 2016
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 🙂
Dr Aamina Khan, November 2015
Thank you for many years of help and support in an increasingly difficult job as a sessional GP in the NHS.
Dr Bettina JamesDevon
[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.
Dr Christine Vickery, September 2016
I feel strongly that sessional GPs need an organisation solely focussed on representing their interests.
Dr Tim CantorKent
“Love LocumDeck. Invoice sent for this month. Super quick and easy once set-up. Form all calculated – lovely!”
Dr Kate Little, May 2017
“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.”
Dr Karthik Krishna, 2019
“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.”
Dr Rachael Scott, August 2017
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.
Annette Steele, December 2016
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.
Dr Stephen PopeMember since 2000Yorkshire
I have found membership very helpful during my time as a locum and GP and would like to thank you very much.
Dr Louise Napier-HemyCheshire
“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.”
