Five things sessional GPs want in 2021 – NASGP survey results

2020 was the most unusual year for locums yet – not just in terms of the clinical challenges, but also because of lost and cancelled work.

Changes to the way that our members work and practice affect the support that NASGP provides. To find out more about how members’ careers changed in 2020 and what they need from us in 2021, we ran a short three-question survey to find out more about how our members are coping.

Most of our respondents were GP locums (67.6% including portfolio locums and clinical assistants) with 11.8% salaried and locum. We also heard from out of hours GPs (8.7%), CCAS clinicians (5.8%), and a hospice specialty doctor – reflecting the diversity of NASGP’s membership.

"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin -my profile, certificates, Ts and Cs, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
