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

Agreement has now been reached on increases in clinical salaries for 2004. 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. The increase from 1 April 2004 is by 2.7% for Clinical Lecturers, 2.5% for consultants who remain on the old honorary Consultant contract, and 3.225% for consultants transferring to the new (2003) contract.

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. 655) as revised, with effect from 1 April 2003, by Notice (Reporter, p. 571) are replaced, with effect from 1 April 2004, by the following figures:

Clinical Lecturer£27,483 by ten increments to £47,510

The offices of:

Associate Dean in the Faculty of Clinical Medicine

Director and Assistant Director of Studies in General Practice

These offices are part-time and stipends are determined by local agreement, with reference to the appropriate full-time consultant salary.

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:

Old contract:

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 2004: £55,699, £59,753, £63,807, £67,861, £72,483.

2003 Consultant contract:

If the integrated job plan and the honorary Consultant contract agreed with the NHS covers not less than ten Programmed Activities 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 2004: £67,133, £69,264, £71,396, £73,528, £75,654, £80,717, £85,780, £90,838.
