Junior doctors' 2016 contract

Junior doctors

On Tuesday 5 July the British Medical Association (BMA) announced that their members had voted against the proposed new junior doctors contract. On the 6 July the health secretary announced details of the new 2016 junior doctors' contract.

It is proposed that doctors and dentists in training will be employed on the new terms when they take up a post. This will be done according to when their existing contracts of employment expire and in line with the implementation timetable published below. The first doctors would move on to the new arrangements in October 2016.

Following this announcement, the terms and conditions of service (TCS) and the pay and conditions circular have been updated. These documents still reflect the agreed terms between the government, NHS Employers, and the BMA. All previous versions of the 2016 TCS and pay and conditions circular (M&D) 2/2016 should be replaced by the 6 July versions below.
