As part of the 2016 ACAS agreement between NHS Employers and the British Medical Association (BMA), a commitment was made to collaboratively to develop good rostering guidance to support employers and doctors.
The guide sets out ways in which good rostering practice can be used to develop rotas. It aims to support and create an effective training environment that also meets the needs of the service, while enabling flexibility for doctors and employers, both of whom have a stake in the process.
The guide covers:
- key principles of good rostering under the junior doctor contract
- roster design
- roster management
- managing leave requests in rotas, rosters and work schedules for doctors in training
- non-resident on- call rotas
- good rota design and rostering recommendations for LTFT doctors.
