The framework agreement follows negotiations between NHS Employers, the British Medical Association (BMA) and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) on proposed improvements to the contract for doctors in training.

The British Medical Association Junior Doctors Committee (BMA JDC) consulted with their members in June and asked them to agree the proposal in a referendum.

The agreement covers the period from 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2023.
