This event has now finished.

You will all be aware of recent media coverage of a test case that has been brought by a junior doctor, Sarah Hallett, against Derby Teaching Hospitals.

Dr Hallett seeks declarations that the way in which Derby Teaching Hospitals monitored her and her colleagues’ hours and  breaks was incorrect and skewed the final results, potentially depriving her and her colleagues of a banding supplement.

If Dr Hallett wins her case, any other Trust which monitored junior doctors’ hours in the same or a similar  way as Derby Teaching Hospitals could be in the firing line for many claims for backdated pay being brought by their junior doctor employees (both current and historic).

The BMA is publicly backing Dr Hallett and has stated its belief that such breaches had been commonplace due to the widespread use and incorrect application of monitoring software.

Our next session, is taking place at our Liverpool office  on 21 May were we will examine this case and discuss the potential implications for everyone else! We would be delighted if you could join us.
