Join a chamber

Are you looking for sustainable work as a freelance medical practitioner but don't know where to start? Fed up of doing all the admin work that comes with being a locum? Want to work independently and have flexibility but retain an element of camaraderie with like-minded medical professionals?

Still unsure what a Medical Chambers is?

A Medical Chambers is similar to an agency in that we find you work, however that is where the comparisons end... By working through The Medical Chambers you remain an independent freelance General Practitioner, so you can set your own rates, access the NHS Pension scheme, select which Practices you work with and generally be in control of your overall work-life balance.

We have worked hard to build a reputation and relationships with practices and services so you don't have to. We will market your availability and book your sessions, negotiate rates and tasks within the parameters you have set. As well as troubleshoot any issues, invoice practices and complete your pension forms.

Clinical Governance &
Continued Professional Development

Chambers' Meetings are the foundation of our success and at the heart of what we offer Members. Through our regular meetings you will be able to discuss patient cases, significant events or issues, sharing your learning in a safe and supportive environment. We can assist you with audits and peer/practice feedback for your appraisal and revalidation. Our CPD provision is also supported by the NB Medical team, so you know you will be getting the best CPD available.

Pastoral Support

Working in General Practice can often be like a battlefield with record numbers of Clinicians deciding to leave the profession due to burnout. We offer an alternative for Clinicians who wish to continue doing what they are good at - using their knowledge and skills to help their patients. Joining The Medical Chambers isn't just about getting a steady stream of work and someone doing your admin; it's about joining a team of fantastic Clinicians who support one another and lift each other up.

Mentoring and Support
for Newly Qualified GPs

If you have recently qualified and haven't yet decided where you want to work or if you want to take up a Partnership then becoming a freelance GP is a great way to gain experience in a variety of settings. We can buddy you up with a mentor to ensure you have the support you require as you embark on your career in general practice.

Portfolio Working

Working through The Medical Chambers allows you to have a successful portfolio career. Many of our Members work in a variety of different roles, for example, salaried posts, appraisers, CCG/NHSE work, academia, special interests (e.g. sports medicine, mental health, drug & alcohol, minor surgery etc.). Working through The Medical Chambers enables them to maintain their general practitioner status.
