Chambers | How can they support the GP workforce?

GP locum chambers is a collaborative model; rather than independent locums competing against each other, locums in chambers work together as a co-operative.

In chambers

  • All locums perform all their work through their chambers, so GP capacity is never an unknown.
  • Chambers can 'buffer' their GPs, allocating them to a practice at a time when need is most apparent e.g. Christmas and Easter.
  • GP locums naturally avoid working in difficult practices; the chambers infrastructure, and close-working and support from local CCGs and GP federations, can enable chambers locums to much better support failing practices.
