Document How long can I be classed a GP Locum?

To be regarded as a GP Locum, you must have worked on a temporary basis performing regular sessions.
If you have worked at a practice covering for an absent GP for six months or you are aware from the outset this work will exceed 6 months then you have the option to be regarded as a Type 2 practitioner for pension purposes. If this is decided then the practice must treat you as a sessional GP and Locum forms A and B would not be required
If your work continues beyond a period of 6 months and you choose to remain as a GP locum then you must continue to submit Locum forms A and B within the given timescales.
