childcare (TFC) scheme during Covid-19

You may now be eligible for the tax-free childcare (TFC) scheme during COVID-19.

The government has brought in temporary changes to its TFC scheme, potentially giving more people access to 30 hours free childcare.

The basic requirement for eligibility is:

  • You must expect to earn at least the equivalent of the National Minimum Wage or living wage over the next three months. This equates to £1,813.76 for an over 25 year old.

"I am so glad and grateful for being a member of NASGP's BOB locum chambers. I started with them in a critical period of my career as I was a newly-qualified GP, looking for work in a new area with a new virus hardly hitting the world and the jobs market.

Richard and Ali's help was a godsend. They introduced me to locum work in a friendly and kind manner, provided valuable support and excellent service through the ever-improving LocumDeck and NASGP website. With the help of the chambers, I received a face to face tutorial on Emis (I trained on SystmOne) and my online profile was promoted on a growing network of GP practices throughout Buckinghamshire, Oxford and Berkshire.

I was able to work in different GP practices with different staff and patient demographics, massively increasing my clinical experience, resilience and communication skills.

It also helped me funnelling down all the job offers I received through my locum work until I recently agreed for a salaried position in a GP practice that I love working at. "
