Negotiating your employment

Negotiating your employment as a GP Registrar can be overwhelming.

Remember, the National Terms and Conditions for the Employment of Registrars (NTCER) applies to all GP registrars. This agreement outlines the minimum entitlements that you, as a GP registrar, receive.

The NTCER is negotiated every two years between GPRA and GPSA. At these negotiations, we represent you and advocate for the best-possible agreement.


We know the NTCER inside out. We can help you:

  • understand what you are entitled to
  • provide advice on what to look out for in contracts
  • support you as you negotiate your employment.

There are many online resources to support you as you enter employment negotiations.


These resources will help you negotiate:

  • the NTCER
