Salaried Employment Terms

Updated on Monday, 8 April 2019, 575 views

Always ensure you are happy with your contract before you sign.  The LMC can provide to members a basic contract checking service, and you can always call for advice however we are not lawyers and cannot give a legal opinion.

The BMA offers free to its members an extremely comprehensive contract checking service. Gp contracts vary hugely in their make-up and contents. It is well worth seeking a review to ensure you understand what you are signing. Practices should be happy to clarify points before posts are taken up and some points may be open to negotiation.
