Q&A: What is a chambers? 

NASGP’s Locum Chambers model connects GP locums so that having a flexible career no longer means working in isolation. Dr Richard Fieldhouse explains how it works.

Q: What is a locum chambers? 

NASGP’s GP locum Chambers model brings together all the benefits of NASGP membership with being part of a local community of highly engaged GP locums, pooling all their locum resources to create a holistic support package for their work, supporting each other and the practices where they all work. 

Rather than working in competition with each other, up to 15 locums collaborate in each separate Chambers – sometimes also called ‘virtual practices’ – and should the popularity of the chambers mean that the number of locums is any more than this, we split the Chambers in two to keep each team an effective size.
