When salaried GPs get the full sick pay entitlement

From Dr PA Bradbury

Sheffield

In the article 'Is salaried GP entitled to this sick pay deal?' (Financial, 13 April) the respondent comments that the GP would only qualify for the full amount of sick leave after five years of service.

The BMA recommended minimum contract for salaried GPs states: 'All previous NHS service (including locum service), without a break of more than 12 months, is aggregated for the purposes of sick leave. There are specific circumstances in which a break of more than 12 months does not mean a break in qualifying service.'

So if a salaried GP worked for five years continuously in the NHS prior to taking up a post, she may well be entitled to full sick leave entitlement.
