Statement from BMA JDC Chair Jeeves Wijesuriya:
“As you can see we have secured significant additional investment and enhancements to pay, conditions & training opportunities with a new £90 million investment over the next four years.
The deal includes:
-Increases to weekend & disco shift pay
-£1,000 a year more for less than full time trainees
-A fifth nodal point on the payscale at ST6
-'Section 2' transitional pay protection extended to 2025
-Improved GP trainee mileage & confirmed supernumerary status
-Improvements in rest and safety entitlements, with no more pay-to-stay when too tired to drive
-Contractualised NROC/LTFT rostering guidance
-Exception reporting for all ARCP/portfolio requirements
-Guaranteed annual pay uplift of 2 per cent each year for the next four years.
The BMA Junior Doctors Committee have endorsed these improvements.
A YES vote in the referendum that opens on 14 June would secure these changes. A NO vote means we would stay on the imposed 2016 contract as it is and remain in dispute.
Junior doctors BMA members or final/penultimate year students in England will get to vote & will receive an email inviting them to take part.
