BOTA have spent the weekend analysing the new terms & conditions of service (TCS) and have attempted to remain objective throughout. Below is an attempt to summarise the 81 page document in the context of a trauma & orthopaedics trainee.
The contract consists of 14 schedules each outlining a separate aspect of the new contract. This mirrors the TCS released in March after the imposition of the contract. We shall attempt to compare and contrast the two contract offers throughout this document.
