Get strong, stay strong

Many are also aware that to really get the health benefits from cardiovascular exercise we need to be getting our heart rate and respiratory rate up to a moderate or vigorous intensity for at least 150 or 75 minutes a week respectively.

What many people are unfamiliar with, however, is the importance of balance and strength training from cradle to grave.

"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.
