NASGP’s free Standardised Practice Information Portal (Spip) is the information air traffic control system for busy GP surgeries. All those ever-changing phone numbers, email addresses, contacts, policies, guidelines, soft intelligence and service changes can now be stored and retrieved in one easy-to-find place at the moment you need it.
Spip helps the practice to initially 'on-board' information - as if a new member of the team is asking questions about practice processes - and then displays this information in an easy-to-search, easy-to-update format, accessible by the whole practice team within 3 clicks.
Spip also allows local networks (such as a GP federations, CCGs, practice hubs etc) to support practices by instantly supplying relevant information upstream in a dedicated, centralised updatable directory that practices can synchronise with and customise with their own practice-specific information.
- You must be a practice manager to create a Spip; it's free, and part of NASGP's Practeus platform, which also includes free use of LocumDeck. Praxcteus is free, and is included as part of free NASGP Practice Manager membership.
- Add unlimited number of GPs, nurses and practice staff to view or edit your Spip.
- There's no catch - NASGP does not charge practices for anything, ever. NASGP charges sessional GPs £11 per month for membership, plus a small 5% fee paid by locums if a practices used LocumDeck's Instant Book to make a direct, instant booking.
If you've already got an NASGP account, whether as an Associate, NASGP membership or Practice Manager member, login to your NASGP dashboard.
- It's completely free to clinicians and staff to view a practice's Spip, assuming you have their authorisation.
- For secure access you will need to be registered with NASGP as an Associate, but that's free too.
- GP wishing to set up a Spip? Become a 'Spip Clinician' (register as a free NASGP Associate or become a paying NASGP member) and ask your practice manager to activate you as a 'Spip Editor'. From your NASGP Dashboard (after signing in) you can formally invite your practice manager to set up a Spip.

Locum folders are great, but they can easily get lost, go out of date quickly and it's often difficult to find the relevant information. So now, practices can add all that information to Spip - easy to search, can't get lost, simple to update, and all free as part of Spip!
I’ve tried simple templates or hard copies of locum packs before but find they so quickly become out of date. I like the way NASGP [Standardised Practice Information Portal] is easier to navigate and update than these paper-based systems.
