GPs (doctors)and practice managers confront many issues in staff management. A Guide to Staff Employment in General Practice provides detailed procedures for navigating these sometimes difficult issues. At the same time, the book identifies relevant UK law and draws on authoritative advice from bodies such as Acas. Although it contains expert information on employment law, expert knowledge is not required to use this book. It has an easy-to-use style and gives step-by-step guidance throughout. Information is accompanied by meticulous cross-referencing and details of the pertinent employment law are readily available in the appendices. The book accesses current law and good practice, allowing readers to manage any specific issue. The book covers a wide range of topics, including: the employment contract - the key to the many employment rights - and how to change the contract legally; managing disciplinary procedures; performance management (including sickness absence); dismissal; equality; maternity rights; appraisal; workplace stress. The book also contains a chapter on recent developments, such as GP federations and their employment implications. This guide has been compiled by a practice adviser with many years' experience of advising, representing and training GP practices. Not only does the author know how employment law works, but he also knows how general practice works. Readership: GP staff partners, practice managers, HR personnel in (English) Clinical Commissioning Groups, GP trainers who may need an employment manual to take trainees through learning situations; trainee practice managers.
