NESG welcomes GP registrars in their final months of training as the transition from training to locum work can be a difficult one without peer support and the group has historically provided important means for newly qualified Gps to obtain support and advice from more experienced locums.
When sending in their proof of being on a performers list they should indicate the expected date of completion of training.
