Hot Topics & FAQ

NHSmail now live for locum GPs in England

After much hard work, in collaboration with NHSEI, NHSD and the GMC, NHSmail for GP locums went live today.

This is a really important step in the recognition of the value and importance of locum GPs within primary care.

This will allow locum GPs to access local, regional and national information. As an example many locum GPs have no access to information on COVID-19 updates as they do not have NHSmail.
