Based on the year ended 5th April 2016, or if accounts are not prepared to that date, then for that source the accounting date ending in the year to 5th April 2016, the balance due for 2015-16 is payable by the 31st January 2017.

"I started working as a locum GP in January this year and NASGP have been invaluable in helping to co-ordinate my bookings and organise all the administrative aspects of sessional work which can be complex and time consuming. Their client support is outstanding and they have always resolved any queries promptly and personally. They care about the service they provide and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any sessional GPs who want to minimise time spent on administration and focus on providing patients with high quality care."
