Freelance GPs

There are many benefits for freelance GPs working in Sterling Medical Chambers:

  • Our ethos is to provide a gently managed environment which still allows for the individuality and freedom that freelance GPs enjoy.
  • We are not working in isolation but are part of a team. Support comes from fellow tenants as well as the Chambers Manager. Regular chambers meetings allow for frank discussion and an opportunity for continuing professional development.
  • We ensure that working as a freelance GP within Chambers makes the process of appraisal and revalidation less onerous.
  • Tenants remain self-employed and our NHS income remains superannuable.
  • Individual tenants have control over their own workload and working patterns.
  • The Chambers Manager takes all bookings and does all the negotiation with practices on behalf of our tenants.
  • Invoices, payments and pension forms, and any queries are all dealt with by the Chambers Manager.
  • Work gravitates to the Chambers because Practices find it’s more efficient and easier to use than trying to contact several individual locums.
  • Confidential feedback from Practices can be used to help personal development
  • We make it easier to keep in the local information loop.
  • We give our members an increased standing and voice in the local primary care community.
  • There is the possibility of organising cover in the event of a personal crisis.
  • We are free to join (subject to assessment).
