Support for GP practices in non-lead employer areas
NHS Employers has introduced a central support service to those GP practices not otherwise linked through lead employer arrangements, in order to help ensure the effective implementation of the 2016 contract for GP trainees. This will help to reassure these practices that they can meet their contractual and associated non-contractual obligations to offer GP trainees terms and conditions of service (TCS) that are consistent with the 2016 contract.
