Joint Negotiating Committee for doctors assisting local authorities

Medical referees – In 2007 consideration was given to the future of this JNC following a consultation process. The consultation process identified that very few authorities relied upon the national negotiations. As a consequence the Staff Side, who were represented by the British Medical Association, were formally advised of the Management Side's decision to withdraw from this JNC with effect from 31 March 2008. Thereafter, changes to fees that previously fell within the scope of the JNC have been a matter for local determination.
