Prior to commencing Specialty Training I held a career grade position. Am I eligible to salary protection?

Providing that you have been working as a career grade (consultant, associate specialist, staff grade or specialty doctor) for a minimum of 13 months immediately prior to re-entering training you may be eligible.

If you think you are entitled to pay protection you need to send a copies of your full CV, contract, payroll record and payslips to the NES HR Team by going to and submitting a support request.

Please include the words ‘pay protection’ within the subject of your email.
