Why are heartsinks so attracted to me?

Dear Career Mentor

I am attracting so many heartsink patients I feel utterly drained. It feels like my only option is to change career, but I don’t know where to start. Please advise me.

Sorry to hear you sound so despondent. Firstly, of course you can change career. But well before you even think about tearing up your GMC certificate, there is some reflection and investigation needed.

"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."
