Who are Sessional GPs (SGPs)?
The title 'Sessional GP' is an umbrella term used to collectively refer to salaried, locum and freelance GPs, at any stage in their career, from newly qualified to peri-retirement.
Working as an SGP can be isolating and often lacks the peer support that is available to regular practice colleagues. Furthermore, it can be more challenging to access key elements of Continuing Professional Development to facilitate career development and appraisal.
With this in mind, BGPERT aims to support Sessional GPs to access education that is relevant to their learning needs and professional development, whilst at the same providing them with the opportunity to network with others in a similar position.
