Dear members,

YDEF recently represented diabetes and endocrinology trainees at the JDC meeting in London. Johann Malwana discussed the outcome of the meetings with ACAS and the principles of the contract. Subsequently NHS Employers have released the contract in full as well as details on pay breakdown.

We urge our members to read this contract thoroughly and assess for themselves whether they find this acceptable or not. We at YDEF are still unclear about certain aspects of the contract and readily admit that it can be confusing at times. We look forward to more details and sample rotas. There is an FAQ page by the BMA and an FAQ from NHS employers to help answer some questions you may have. In addition, we also encourage you to attend the regional roadshows which will explain the contract in more detail.

All BMA members will subsequently be asked to vote on whether they accept the contract or not. Therefore it is imperative that you understand the contract itself, impact on both current and future trainees and the implications of a yes or no vote.

As we continue to stress, YDEF represents and promotes the needs of our members and will continue to update you on progress.

YDEF committtee
