Consultant contract

Heads of Terms

In September 2013 the BMA agreed to enter into formal negotiations with NHS Employers over a new contract for consultants working in England and Northern Ireland. these negotiations will be based around the Heads of Terms circulated earlier in the year. The BMA negotiates on behalf of those dentists employed on hospital medical terms and conditions and the BDA has a seat on the BMA's contract reference group.
