Referendum results on improvements to junior doctors contract

Medical Pay

The British Medical Association (BMA) has voted in favour of the proposed deal which will see investment over a four-year period in the contract for doctors in training.

This deal follows a period of negotiation between NHS Employers, the BMA and Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).

New terms will be introduced from August 2019 for doctors in training which will put the contract on the same basis as all national NHS pay contracts with changes agreed in partnership between staff and employer representatives.

The changes will be phased in, taking into consideration the operational implications, and employers will be notified once the implementation timeline has been finalised.

More details can be found in the full framework agreement

NHS Employers will also be developing additional resources in due course to keep employers fully updated on the changes and will also hold a webinar tomorrow (Thursday 27 June) from 12 to 1pm to talk employers through the changes to the terms and conditions and the implementation of these. If you would like to join the webinar, please register here.
