Salaried Employment Terms

Always ensure you are happy with your contract before you sign.  The LMC can provide to members a basic contract checking service. 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.

Here are some useful resources to guide you.
