consultants have voted favour of accepting a new contract.
British Medical Association said 60 per cent voted in favour of the contract in
the ballot which comes after the original proposals were rejected in a previous
vote last year.
secretary John Reid claimed the result was good for both for the NHS and
new contract means that there will be:
No compulsion to do non-emergency work at evenings or weekends
Extra recognition for evening and weekend work
A fair and balanced appeals procedure to resolve disputes about pay progression
and job plans
