Last week was the LMC UK conference – the one chance for representatives from all LMCs across the UK to get together to debate the matters affecting all GPs. It is important that the sessional GP voice is heard at conference and in my speech, I reflected on the work of the subcommittee and challenged the BMA, GPC and LMCs on whether we are getting it right for sessional GPs.
There was a debate on the need to support GPs who work for the myriad of different employers and conference voted that the BMA should develop model terms and conditions, based on the model salaried GP contract. This is in addition to the guidance we already have for GPs working in non-standard roles.
Inevitably there was also a debate about pensions – there was unanimous support from conference for our challenge of the unfair death in service benefits arrangements for locum GPs and support for pushing to change annualisation arrangements.
You can watch my speech (day 1, 2 hours 16 mins), the debate on model contracts for GPs working in different settings led by Ben Molyneux from the subcommittee exec (day 1, 2 hours 26 mins) and the locum pension debate which Krishan Aggarwal imparted his considerable knowledge and expertise (day 2, 7 hours, 5 mins) on the conference webpage.
Finally, this is your chance to say if we are getting it right, to use your voice and get involved – nominations for the sessional subcommittee elections have opened today, at 12 noon – the subcommittee is elected by all non-partner GPs across the UK, and by both BMA and non-BMA members. The available seats are organised by geographic regions, but the election is UK wide. Find out how to get involved
Anyone who is a sessional GP can stand, and I really want to encourage you to get involved. If you’re worried about experience, please don’t be. We have a brilliant support staff at the BMA who are on hand to help, and the subcommittee welcomes all candidates whether you are a newly qualified portfolio GP, or an experienced late career sessional.
Please spread the word, share on social media and with your LMCs, encourage your colleagues, and do get it touch with any questions.
Zoe Norris is the chair of the sessional GPs subcommittee
