How to set up a locum chambers

I was a part-time salaried, part-time locum GP and before the first lockdown I was thinking of becoming a full-time GP locum. But I hesitated, because I was worried about being isolated. 

I was a full-time salaried GP for 13 years but I got burnt out, and became a full-time locum. Following advice from my accountant to keep a balance, after locuming full-time for two months, I took a part-time job.

"I have been working with NASGP as the main source of income since graduating. I can't recommend them more highly for newly-graduated GPs. They helped me with setting my terms and conditions and they even arranged a tutorial session about EMIS, as the system was new to me.

LocumDeck is a great help when it comes to organising sessions, pension forms and invoices for tax purposes.

NASGP was particularly supportive during the Covid-19 period. It recognised the effect it had on locum work, temporarily waived the already small fee on sessions and were keen on getting the members together in regular video meetings.

I'm a satisfied member of NASGP. "
