Lead Employer

GP Trainees in the North West are all employed by a single organisation.

The organisation providing this service is Mersey and West Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (Previously known as St Helens & Knowsley NHS Trust). They have a dedicated HR team that deals with all aspects of employment for GP Specialty Trainees.

Their responsibilities include completing all pre-employment checks such as checking your right to work, completing a CRB disclosure and Occupational Health checks amongst others. They are always on hand for advice on contractual matters such as pay, all types of leave such as annual, bank holiday, special, maternity and paternity leave, as well as dealing with disciplinary and grievances to name just a few. Should you ever require Occupational Health support, the relevant lead employer can arrange this for you too.
