As a specialist area of GP practice, working as a GP locum requires its own set of skills. The NASGP has developed a curriculum of training to equip GP locums and enable you to work safely and well.
An NASGP publication endorsed by the RCGP. Authors: Dr Judith Harvey, Dr Christine Haseler, Dr Stephanie Franz, Dr John Pike, Dr Steve Nickless and Dr Richard Fieldhouse (NASGP chair).
"I started my career as a GP locum last year a week after CCT. I strongly agree with the doctors who praise the NASGP team. If there is no NASGP, there would be no GP locum called Dr Darshanie Seneviratne.
The team is absolutely amazing especially Dr Richard Fieldhouse, Ali Lewis and Jacqui Gumbrell – all providing unbelievable support to us. I've never seen such urgent assistance from any other team at any point in my career. For example when one of my invoices was delayed by a month and a half, Ali was incredibly supportive. It is a very good strength for us as we have support with any issues. I would like to stay with this amazing team forever. "
