The Business of Healthcare Podcast with Tara Humphrey

Nov 2, 2022

215 Workforce is our most valuable asset with Dr Richard Fieldhouse 


I have the pleasure in welcoming Dr Richard Fieldhouse to The Business of Healthcare Podcast this week to share with us the work that is carried out by the National Association of Sessional GPs.  It is a great insight into the world of Locum GP’s and why they are an important part of the GP Community. We hear about Richard’s career and why he chose to be a locum GP rather than salaried and the work that goes on behind the scenes at nasgp helping locums find work to suit their needs and requirements. 


This week on The Business of Healthcare: 

  • The challenges working as a locum GP 
  • What has changed in General Practice 
  • Continuity of Care 
  • The importance of the Coffee Break 
  • Enforced Under-Performance 
  • Leadership Lessons 
  • About nasgp and how they help support the Locum GP Community 
  • Having 7000 Locum Members
