LMC Podcast Explores Sessional GPs

Publication date: October 2021

Podcast

The latest episode of the Humberside LMCs podcast explores being a sessional GP.

Sessional GPs now make up almost half of the total GP headcount* so what do GPs doing sessional work (either salaried or locum) need to know? In this edition we're joined by Humberside LMC Medical Secretary Dr Rolan Schreiber to explore the pros and cons of working as a sessional GP including:

  • Stability of work and income
  • Employment rights
  • Work commitments and control over workload
  • CPD and revalidation Portfolio career opportunities

*In November 2020, GP Online gave the proportions of the total GP headcount as 53% partners, 36% salaried, 12% locums, and 1% retainers.
