GP locums exposed to NHS pension cost-cutting

1st March 2010 by NASGP

We’ve received yet another email from a frustrated member:

I have just had my supperannuation cheque returned from [X] PCT as it is just over the 10 weeks, even though as pointed out to them i only got the paper work and cheque from the practice 1 week ago and the forms were dated so.

We wrote to the BMA 2 weeks ago (no reply yet) with this list of PCTs (as a result of our member survey) where locums have experienced problems submitting their payments where these PCTs have cited either the 10 week rule (locum form A) – or the 7 day rule (locum form B):

  • Berkshire West
  • West Sussex
  • East Sussex
  • Bury (Lancashire)
  • Surrey
  • Nottingham County
  • Hampshire
  • Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire
  • Kingston
  • Wandsworth
  • Croydon
  • Sutton & Merton

"I have found LocumDeck to be the most helpful and invaluable resource for keeping bookings and accounts. I want to thank you for the wonderful service you provide. Many thanks once again for all the NASGP provides, and particularly for use of the excellent resource LocumDeck has proved to be – something I have recommended to many colleagues who have taken a step to locum work."
