For us, there is little new in this, but it is a good summary. I would suggest referring to it if the circumstances arise. It covers the legal aspects regarding consent and documentation. It reminds us to think about the use of HIV prophylaxis (with helpful charts of who should receive it) and also evaluation of the risk of self-harm. There are also good contact details for charities that can help patients afterwards (including in the longer term)

"I was introduced to the local locum chambers several months ago when I made a career move from partnership. I now combine salaried and locum roles. The chambers provides helpful support, leadership, advice and governance and reduces professional isolation. This combination of support reassures me and helps me provide safe and consistent care to patients within the community . There is a useful, innovative online portal - LocumDeck - which helps me access local work and which has efficient systems for reconciliation of finance including pensions. I would highly recommend joining a locum chambers for any GPs starting out in the locum world ."
