In the primary healthcare sector we are seeing that a growing number of GPs are opting for locum positions. The National Association of Sessional GPs estimates that there are no fewer than 17,000 GPs working as locums, which equates to around one third of the current workforce. With such a high number of locums, it is no surprise that one in seven GP practices rely on locums for over 20% of the practice’s workload.

As part of our commitment to providing the NHS with a professional, socially conscious service we have designed the innovative interim GP role which aims to bridge the gap between salaried and locum GPs. We understand that GPs pride themselves on providing the highest quality of care for their patients and with this in mind our interim roles accommodate the same continuity of care aspect of a salaried position with the added flexibility associated with the Locum role.

Our Interim GP role benefits our clients by providing a longer term solution in areas that have faced recruitment and retention issues. By providing practices with a GP who will work on site for a minimum of six months, strong working relationships can be developed between the practice staff and the interim GP. In addition, patients can still receive the continuity of care that is expected with a salaried position.  We endeavour to provide a GP throughout the contract term, giving our clients peace of mind, while a GP who wants to take on the interim role can benefit from our other services such as our indemnity cover and corporate rewards scheme.

Furthermore, interim GPs and clients benefit from the support of our dedicated Client Services Managers, who liaise with the Practice Management Teams and interim GPs on a regular basis and who are also available at any time should either party have a query or concern.  The Client Services Managers engage with the Practice, ensuring they are receiving the highest level of service whilst also engaging with the interim GP, providing advice on matters such as training and personal development and receiving feedback in order to help us enhance our services.  Client Services Managers are the first point of contact for both the GP and client throughout the duration of their contract with Primary Care Professionals and will ensure all your queries are answered and concerns managed, enabling you to focus on caring for the patient.
