Orange Route - Your pay and terms and conditions
The vast majority of staff employed by NHS organisations receive NHS or equivalent pay and are on NHS terms and conditions of service. Terms and conditions of service include such details as holiday and sick leave entitlement and contractual redundancy benefits. For staff directly employed by NHS organisations these, in most cases, are set out in the NHS terms and conditions of service handbook and for NHS employed medical and dental staff in their relevant terms and conditions of service.
These documents may cover more than contractual terms and conditions issues and therefore they may not all automatically transfer under TUPE - the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006. Please contact your HR department or staff representative for further advice.
How will my pay and terms and conditions be affected if I transfer?
If you are transferred to a GP practice or primary medical care contract holder under TUPE your contractual pay and terms and conditions of service are protected. TUPE protects your existing NHS pay and terms and conditions of service at the point of transfer, and this can include any pre-agreed contractual future entitlements (e.g. a three year pay deal negotiated pre-transfer). This, however, does not cover any future changes in NHS terms and conditions of service (e.g. annual pay increases) negotiated after the transfer date, unless there is a specific agreement with your new employer that they will apply.
