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.
