Junior Doctors Pay Scales, including Dentists in training.

There are two national pay scales which junior doctors and dentists in training (England) may be paid under depending on their stage of training and which contract they are under.  At UCL these are called the ‘StR scale’ and ‘Junior Doctors Pay scale’.  The StR scale is applicable to trainees who were at ST3 and above on 2nd August 2016. Trainees below ST3 on 2nd August 2016 will in most cases be paid on the Junior Doctors pay scale. A national training number is a requirement for payment on either pay scale.

Clinical Training Fellows are Specialty Registrars who are appointed on or after 1 May 2008 on run-through Specialty Training programmes.

Clinical Academic Staff on the pre-2003 contract

In addition there are a number of clinical academic staff who held Honorary Consultant appointments prior to the introduction of the Consultant Clinical Academic contract in 2003 and were paid on the Honorary Consultant pay scales, but were either ineligible to transfer or declined the offer to transfer to the CCA contract. These staff remain on this pay scale. No new appointments are made to this grade.
