Negotiating your employment

Negotiating your employment as a GP Registrar can be overwhelming — we are here to help. 

If you encounter issues with your employment, GPRA can provide you with independent, confidential advice on matters relating to your employment terms and conditions and your employment agreement.

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 an employment agreement
  • support you as you negotiate your employment.
  • ask us a question about the NTCER.

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