Salaried GP model contract toolkit

Minimum terms and conditions

Location: UK

Updated: Friday 8 December 2023

The model terms and conditions bring important improvements to the terms and conditions of salaried GPs, in line with the terms and conditions of other employed doctors in the NHS.

The model contains the minimum terms that must be offered to full-time salaried GPs (with these available on a pro rata basis for those who work part-time) employed by a GMS practice or PCO on or after 1 April 2004. The NHS England Standard Personal Medical Services Agreement in 2015/16 set out that PMS practices should also offer these terms as a minimum to salaried GPs.

It is also possible for all salaried GPs to be employed on enhanced terms and conditions.
