nationally agreed terms and conditions of service
nationally agreed terms and conditions of serviceA UK term of art referring to the standardised contract between a doctor and an employing trust which delineates in precise detail the obligations that the contracting parties have to each other. While a trust is free to offer a contract that differs substantially from a national contract, the BMA has noted that non-standard contracts do not afford the same protection to practitioners as nationally agreed terms of service.
