Departmental circulars

In Northern Ireland, the Department of Health is responsible for informing HSC (health and social care) trusts of all changes to pay and terms and conditions for hospital medical and dental staff and doctors in public health medicine and the community health service, as well as staff covered by Agenda for Change.

This information is contained in departmental circulars which provide information on, amongst other things, uplifts to national salary scales, fees, and certain other allowances (such as mileage rates). The departmental circulars may also contain guidance for employers.

Departmental circulars are available on the DoH website.

Alternatively contact BMA Belfast office on 028 9026 9666.
