Consultant contract reform heads of terms published

NHS Employers has published draft heads of terms for possible reform of the consultants' contract, which have been jointly agreed by the British Medical Association (BMA).

This sets out a framework for future detailed negotiations on amendments to the current consultant contract in England and Northern Ireland and to the clinical excellence awards scheme.

Both parties will now seek the necessary mandates to proceed to formal negotiations from the Departments of Health in England and Northern Ireland and from the BMA's consultant committee.
