Policy Statement

The practice values the services provided by sessional doctors in enabling the practice to meet patient needs and supplementing capacity within the practice team. Regardless of the length of time that a sessional doctor works with the practice, he or she will be treated as a colleague and team member and provided with the necessary equipment and facilities to do a safe and effective job.


Locum GPs will be used to cover:

  • principal GPs’ leave (holiday, sickness or special), where the leave is longer than one week

  • unexpected sickness absence or special leave at short notice (to avoid cancelling surgeries).
