The Salaried GPs Handbook 2010

The British Medical Association has produced an updated version of its Salaried GPs' Handbook for 2010. The handbook has been produced as a benefit of BMA membership for salaried GPs and GP employers. It will also be of interest to those who are intending or about to become salaried GPs.

It explains the legal entitlements of salaried GPs as employees. It therefore helps to ensure that salaried GPs are aware of their statutory and contractual rights, and also helps to prevent GP employers contravening the law unwittingly. The guidance includes new sections on maternity leave and redundancy, and updated information on many other areas such as salary, hours of work, sick leave and employment protection. In addition, it explains the national and local representation of salaried GPs, how to become a salaried GP and the work involved.

Salaried GPs who are BMA members will have received their own individual printed copy of the 2010 handbook. Other BMA members who would like a printed copy should please contact us using the details below.

Please contact  and provide your name, membership number and status (eg salaried GP, GP employer, locum GP, etc). Alternatively, you can call us on 0300 123 123 3.
