Pay and Conditions Circular (M&D) 1/2021

12 / 03 / 2021

Published 12 March 2021

This pay circular sets out the updated pay arrangements for doctors and dentists in training and applies the two per cent increase to pay for these grades from 1 April 2021, that was set out in the 2019 framework agreement.

This circular informs employers of the pay arrangements for doctors and dentists in training covered by the national medical and dental terms and conditions of service. Section 2 includes some pay rates for other closed grades. These have not been uplifted and have been included only to ensure that the format of the tables remains consistent with past circulars.

Any other increases to salaries will be notified following the government decision on the recommendations of the Doctors’ and Dentists’ Review Body (DDRB).
