About Practeus

PRACTEUS LOGO_02

GP locums working in partnership with practices

Practues is NASGP's evolving online platform for busy GPs and practices, and is included as part of your NASGP membership, giving both practices and sessional GPs powerful tools that enable safe, effective, effecient and appropriate practise.

Practeus includes LocumDeck for invoicing and bookings, and Spip for practices to share information with their clinicians.

  • NASGP membership includes full access to LocumDeck, allowing you to quickly invoice practices and generate relevant Locum A and B forms.
  • LocumDeck also allows you to either manually add booked sessions, with a great feature that allows you to trigger email confirmations to practice managers, giving you a full audit trail.
  • And, for a small service charge of 5%, LocumDeck also includes an advanced booking system whereby you define every booking parameter in advance - time, rates, visits, travel etc, tailored to each practice - then sit back and allow practices to book you, according to your exact specifications, using Instant Book.
  • Use our T&Cs picker to create your perfect practice-friendly set of terms and conditions, including your own cancellation policy.
  • Upload your photo, CV, certificates, DBS certificate etc, all beautifully presented to specific practice managers who you've added to your practice address book.
  • We've worked extensively with locum accountancy experts Honey Barrett to bring you a whole suite of tools to help you gather together all your costs and expenses ready for presenting to HMRC, much of it generated on the go from taking relevant information from your invoices and pension forms.
  • Free to practices, staff and GPs.
  • An extensive online area for practices to crowdsource practice-specific information for instant access in the consulting room.
  • Over 500 indexed and searchable areas designed for easy use by clinicians, with all information just three clicks away.
  • For full NASGP members only.
  • A facebook group-style forum for any questions relating to working as a sessional GP.
  • If a practice has given you access to their Spip, you'll also be able to contribute to that practice's forum, helping you integrate more easily within the team and know what's going on.
  • If the practice is part of a NASGP Network - allowing CCGs and federations to trickle down guidelines and policies to their practices via Spip - you'll also have access to a forum accessible by all staff in that network.
  • As a GP, you'll sometimes identify concerns about a local service that can be having an impact on quality of services, but not have a way to flag these up.
  • Now, within Spip, you can 'report a service issue to a practice' which will be visible to the practice manager, which they can then collate and 'escalate' to their Network.
  • LocumPack is part of Spip, and is a concentration of each practices essential practice-specific information and works as an induction tool for locums who are unfamiliar with the practice.
  • Even if you do just the odd session, it's still good to send professional invoices and keep track of all your payments.

  • LocumDeck allows locums to completely define every parameter of locum work so that they can have full confidence in allowing you to view all their information and book them instantly.
  • All your booked sessions are visible in your calendar, with full audit trail, access to their professional credentials etc.
  • No 'Trojan Horse' exclusivity contracts, so you won't be fined if a locum goes on to join your practice as a partner or salaried GP.

“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.”
Dr Paul Riley, Locum GP, May 2017
