Stipends of the holders of clinical academic offices and payments for clinical responsibility: Notice

Agreement has now been reached on increases in clinical salaries for 2001. Following a recent meeting of the Board of the Universities and Colleges Employers Association, the Clinical Academic Staff Salaries Committee have agreed to translate the recent award of the Doctors' and Dentists' Review Body into the salaries of clinical academic staff. This gives an increase of 3.9 per cent from 1 April 2001 for all staff.

In accordance with the principle that the remuneration of clinical academic staff in Cambridge should be broadly comparable with that of equivalent staff in other UK medical schools, the General Board have agreed to approve revised stipends and scales of stipends for clinical appointments in Cambridge. The figures currently shown in Schedule IV to the regulations for stipends (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 645) are replaced, with effect from 1 April 2001, by the following figures:

Clinical Lecturer £25,015 by ten increments to £43,245

Associate Dean in the Faculty of Clinical Medicine1 £24,044

Clinical Dean in the Faculty of Clinical Medicine1 £30,055

Regional Postgraduate Dean in the Faculty of Clinical Medicine £66,120

Directors and Assistant Directors of Studies in General Practice2 £6,011

1 Part-time.

2 Part-time. The stipend shown is for one clinical session.

The Board have also approved the following basis for calculating rates of payment for clinical responsibility for University officers with honorary NHS contracts as Consultants:

If the honorary Consultant contract agreed with the NHS covers not less than six NHS sessions a week, the annual pensionable payment for clinical responsibility will amount to the difference between the officer's prime stipend and his or her notional place on the NHS full-time Consultant salary scale. That scale is, with effect from 1 April 2001, £50,810, £54,505, £58,200, £61,895, £66,120.
