Video: Dr Vicky Weeks on reducing sessional isolation

The GPC's new sessional GP subcommittee is working on a number of initiatives to reduce the isolation locums feel.

In an exclusive interview chairwoman Dr Vicky Weeks explained that pandemic flu had highlighted the need for improvement. ‘The vast majority of locums did not receive any information at all about what was going on. That cannot be allowed to continue.’

Watch Dr Weeks explain the measures her committee is taking to reduce sessional isolation and also the work that is being done to ensure sessional GPs are not left out of consortia board elections.

GP is running a conference for locums in London on 27 September. For more details and how to book visit
