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

"The security that LocumDeck brings with the comprehensive terms and conditions, and clarity around the workload I am willing to undertake isn’t there if I agree to a booking via email. It is when practices book through LocumDeck. This is what makes LocumDeck such a powerful tool. It gives me confidence knowing that I’m not going to get inundated with an unsafe surgery or workload."

Dr Charles Elliott, former GP locum (now partner) and Chambers lead, Frimley
