Consultant gastroenterologist job planning guidance


Good job planning should be undertaken in a positive and constructive manner by both the gastroenterologist and their employer. The aim should always be to benefit patients, staff and the wider NHS. It should be negotiated and fully agreed by both parties. It should not be imposed. The BSG believes that patients should be at the centre of the job planning process. A key aim should be to improve patient safety, experience and outcomes. Staff must also be a key focus, the job planning process should help motivate, develop and retain staff to ensure sustainable high-quality services. Consultant job planning must be aligned with the terms and conditions of the national consultant contract. It should be emphasised that this guidance will continue to evolve over time particularly given the rapid changes in healthcare provision necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
