As a GP Registrar, negotiating your employment agreement can be a daunting task. However, it is an essential part of GP training — GPRA is here to support you.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • what the NTCER is and how it applies to you
  • how to become familiar with the terminology used throughout training
  • update you on the minimum entitlements in the NTCER, including the changes to the base rate of pay
  • how to gain confidence in negotiating favourable employment terms and conditions
  • highlight potential issues
  • prepare you for your upcoming term placement
  • a live Q&A and more.
This webinar is useful for both GP registrar negotiating their first employment agreement, those looking to brush up on their NTCER knowledge and those looking to find out how to negotiate terms and conditions above the NTCER minimum.
