BMA issues further guidance on death-in-service

21st August 2009 by NASGP

The BMA have been beavering away trying to demystify the Death-in-Service benefit issue relating to locum GPs (see our article from last month) and has come up with this useful information, available from the BMA website.

Meanwhile, the NHS Superannuation people state in their July newsletter:

A NHS GP Locum who is in active pensionable employment (i.e. working at a Practice, recording the work on forms A and B, and forwarding employee contributions to their host PCT or LHB on time) is covered ‘24/7’ by the Scheme for death in service cover.

"I fell into a salaried role post-CCT, so faced with an unexpected relocation to a completely new area of the country the thought of GP locuming was incredibly daunting.

The assistance I have received from NASGP has been invaluable. I have received excellent and patient admin support when setting up my LocumDeck account. I have enjoyed the monthly chambers meetings I have attended: this made locuming feel far less isolating.

I have easily found plentiful work and am grateful for the invoicing and pension forms being taken care of – this gives me time to focus on the clinical work or make the most of precious days off.

With the support of NASGP Locum Chambers I have filled my diary working in a variety of practices in my new area, and have now joined one practice I enjoyed locuming at on a salaried basis while I continue to do some locum work on top using LocumDeck."
