Q&A: What is a chambers meeting?

To me, the two key components of these chambers meetings are ‘buzz’ and psychological safety.

‘Buzz’ is a rather cheesy term – it just means that people look forward to it. They enjoy the meeting, it’s energising, everyone has a laugh, eats nice food in a safe environment, talking about work and learning. So these meetings have a serious purpose, and are enjoyable.

When we go to meetings like this, what we do professionally feels much more valuable, and attach more value to it – we have much more ownership of it.

"Work as GP locum provides me both flexibility and autonomy together with great job satisfaction. However, there are some complexities one needs to address in starting out and doing everything right.

I've generally found answers to any issues I've had on the NASGP website – an excellent repository of very relevant information. The blog and magazines alone are almost worth the small costs of membership. The fact that NASGP is run by motivated fellow GPs gives me confidence in their guidance and advice.

LocumDeck makes my running things as a self-employed GP almost effortless - I don't think I would want to work without it. Invoicing is streamlined and the website is very user-friendly. After a busy week at work, the last thing you want is to spend hours on business admin. LocumDeck is a real timesaver.
