Engaging with Manchester Locum GPs

20-03-2018 12:00 - 17:00


All locum GPs working in Manchester, who are on the Manchester Medical Performers List, colleagues from federations, and relevant Clinical Leads.


An engagement event for the non-affiliated GP/locum workforce.  Aim to develop a future plan for on-going engagement, and access to training, education and development opportunities.  Locum GPs will have the opportunity to present their experience of locum working in Manchester, hear about what’s happening across Manchester and its 12 neighbourhoods, and hear more about key issues such as GP appraisal and validation – this is the first event to support locum GPs in delivering quality services, and access to further training and education will follow.


  • Understand the preferred arrangements to come together as a representative voice for non-affiliated GPs/locums in Manchester
  • Understand training and education needs
  • Provide access to a peer network, and possibly mentorship and supervision
  • Provide information on GP appraisal and development of professional portfolio

  • Share information about Manchester-specific developments – within services and broader operational arrangements/new models of care
