Free GPRA webinar


As a GP Registrar, negotiating your contract can be a daunting task. However, it is an essential part of GP training — GPRA is here to support you.

During this free webinar we discussed what you need to know about navigating the National Terms and Conditions for the Employment of Registrars (NTCER).

What we discussed

During this webinar Sama discussed:

  • the process of negotiating your employment agreement (contract)
  • how the NTCER works and how registrars are remunerated
  • how to negotiate your employment terms and conditions with your training practice
  • answered audience questions during the live Q&A.

While recorded in 2018, information in this webinar is relevant to the current NTCER.
