Response from NSS - Any GP, including Sessional GPs, are entitled to an NHSmail account. The issue is whether they should be attached to the practice they work in or not. I would suggest that if they are likely to work in a practice for 3 months or more they should be attached to the practice and if they move to another practice they are marked as a leaver from that practice and then added to the next by the practice admins. This would need to be done by your local administrator. If they are only working for a week here or there, they should float within the Board (not attached to anything except GGC Board).

To apply for an NHS Mail account phone the NSS ISD Helpline on (0141) 282 2100, and log a call. Tell the person on the help line that you are a Sessional GP looking for an NHS Mail account and which Health Board you are hosted by. Your application will then be actioned.

PVG application is carried out as part of a new GP’s induction process, along with Performers List application, when they wish to practice as a GP. It is a national scheme and covers them wherever they work in Scotland, and whether they work as a Principal in a practice or sessionally. If a GP comes from another part of the UK they will have to complete the Scottish PVG process even if they are members of the scheme elsewhere in the UK

You can access the GGC Formulary through Staffnet. If you are working in a practice the permissions on the PC should be sufficient. There are also smartphone apps that can be downloaded, however you need a StaffNet account in order to open either the online formulary or the app.
