Service users of mental health services

Most of this guideline is fairly obvious – treat people with respect and take a holistic approach.

The main thing that is new and will impact on us, is that they advise that patients should be given a copy of their initial referral letter to the mental health services. How this will actually work in practice hasn’t been specified.

At initial referral, they should also be seen within 3 weeks (unless they change their offered appointment date, in which case it can be put back by up to 2 weeks).

"I was delighted to have been invited to join GP locum chambers. I enjoy great peer support from my colleagues via our monthly meetings, which has been helpful to me discussing some specific things that arise with GP locum working.

I have found LocumDeck really straightforward to use and immensely helpful; in particular invoicing and the pension forms A and B has cut down my admin time dramatically, which I’m pleased about. The support from NASGP's membership support manager, is excellent, friendly and knowledgeable.

NASGP membership brings with it a host of benefits, including a range of excellent materials to draw on for support and learning. I would recommend NASGP chambers to anyone working or thinking of working as a GP locum."
