NHS Employers’ submission to the Doctors’ and Dentists’ Review body 2020/21 is now available to download.
This year, we have not made any specific recommendations on pay due to the multi-year pay deal for junior doctors, which was agreed in 2019. In addition, any additional increase for SAS doctors is likely to be linked to contract reform.
Feedback from employers, gathered via a survey in October 2019, showed they did not support targeting pay for certain specialties or locations.
Featured in the submission is:
- an update following the agreement reached with the British Medical Association (BMA) on the junior doctor contract
- progress on work taken forward to develop the specialty and associate specialist (SAS) grade and proposals for contract reform
- an update on the revised Local Clinical Excellence Awards (LCEA) scheme for consultants and plans for a successor scheme from 2021
- information on pensions.
