How do we solve the problem of locum GPs?


as the funding for general practice reduces, we reduce the practice sessions proportionally. we then locum in the local out of hours and ED department. income maintained and we are still serving our patients but in a different guise. our PPG are informed at each step and support us in this. The local FT are happy for the extra pair of hands. our own personal income and workload has not changed in reality. The only loser is the CCG. i advise people to speak to your FT's to see how GP's can support them in areas that they are struggling with. - anonymous salaried!
