"After finally deciding to fully engage with NASGP and to join the NASGP BOB Locum Chambers I could now not be happier with every aspect of my professional life. I have incredible flexibility and have a great group of different GP practices to work with – including some who are happy to use me whenever I am available. I really enjoy and get a lot from our monthly meetings and the team makes my admin, invoicing and pension applications as straightforward as possible. I can truly say that I am in the tiny minority of GPs who love their job, have total control of my workload and have minimal stress, working only in great GP practices. I will happily remain with NASGP as long as I want to."

Dr Jonathan Moore, GP, North Oxfordshire
