honorary-consultant contract

honorary-consultant contract

A consultant contract in the UK which is intended for clinical academics who are employed by higher education institutions or other organisations in a research and/or teaching capacity, and who also provide services for NHS patients at a consultant level in NHS facilities. Honorary contacts should be read in conjunction with one’s contract of employment with one’s substantive employer, as together they provide the full contractual framework in which the consultant is expected to deliver his or her agreed duties.
