Visit The Royal Collage of General Practice website has some useful information on maternity and paternity leave for GPs.
A guide for GPs – maternity and other types of parental leave
The BMA have recently produced a guide which they feel will be useful for: Maternity leave, Paternity leave, Adoption leave, Shared parental leave, Statutory parental bereavement leave, Leave for surrogates and Unpaid parental leave. Information about maternity pay will be in individual contracts, but there is also useful information from the BMA
GP education session with babies, RCGP
Nottingham held their first event earlier this year but these are obviously on hold due to the pandemic. Keep an eye out on the RCGP website for further sessions, or sign up for GP Pause emails and we can let you know when the next one occurs.
Keeping In Touch days (KIT)
You can take these if on maternity/paternity/adoption leave. KIT days allow employees to work up to 10 days without bringing the leave period to an end. Pay for KIT days is to be agreed between the employer and employee but the NHS Scheme provides for employees to be paid at their basic daily rate for the hours worked, less appropriate maternity leave payment for KIT days worked.
