The deal also sets out systems of payment for doctors who are on call. This allowance is applied as 8% of basic pay over and above any weekend allowance that has been paid.

Across the board, there will be an average basic pay increase of between 10% and 11%, down from the 13% put forward originally by the Government.

There are also new agreements aimed at reducing discrimination to anyone who takes leave to care for others, such as new mothers or those on parental leave.

This includes accelerated training support to enable people to catch up, such as mentoring and study leave funding.

Professor Jane Dacre, president of the Royal College of Physicians, said: “A way forward in this dispute was needed, both for the wider NHS and the patients we care for every day. “We now await the outcome of the ballot of junior doctors on this proposal and hope for early resolution.

Dr Johann Malawana, the BMA’s junior doctor committee chairman, said: “Junior doctors have always wanted to agree a safe and fair contract, one that recognises and values the contribution junior doctors make to the NHS, addresses the recruitment and retention crisis in parts of the NHS and provides the basis for delivering a world-class health service.

“This represents the best and final way of resolving the dispute and this is what I will be saying to junior doctors in the weeks leading up to the referendum on the new contract.”

junior doctors' proposed deal

Under the deal, Saturdays and Sundays will be paid at a normal rate between 9am and 9pm, with extra pay overnight seven days a week.

This represents a significant shift on the position held by the BMA in previous talks.

To compensate for losing money on the weekend day shift, doctors will receive a percentage of their annual salary for working more than six weekends in a year.

This will range from 3% for working one weekend in seven to up to 10% of their salary if they work one weekend in two.

Any shift which starts at or after 8pm and lasts more than eight hours, and which finishes at or by 10am the following day, will result in an enhanced pay rate of 37% for all hours worked.

Her Majesty the Queen has written the foreword to a very special book being published to celebrate her 90th birthday. ‘The Servant Queen - and the King She Serves’.


Hundreds of copies are being given away to local school children and in community events over the next few weeks by the Church of England and Methodist churches of Kirkheaton and Dalton.

“This beautifully illustrated short book, explores the Queen’s faith and the central role of her trust in Jesus Christ,” says the Rector of Kirkheaton, the Revd Richard Steel, “ along with many other insights into her private life and the values that motivate her.”


“Working with the United Church in Kirkheaton and St Paul’s, Dalton we will be giving away copies to every Primary school child in in Kirkheaton, Dalton and Grange Moor,” he continues, running special Assemblies, and at the Community fairs in the villages.


“We believe the book will inform, surprise, entertain and challenge, all at the same time.”


“We are just one example of thousands of churches across the country who will be giving away copies of this unique tribute,” he continues.


“We’ve already given quite a few away to the members of our congregations and look forward to giving away more.”


Published jointly by HOPE, the Bible Society and the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity (LICC) this book is proving very popular.


Co-author of the book, Mark Greene, Executive Director of LICC, a friend of Rev Steel’s, added, ‘As I’ve been writing this book I’ve been struck how very interested people are to discover more about the Queen’s faith. The Queen has served us all her adult life, with amazing consistency of character, concern for others and a clear dependence on Christ.”

66% say TV is their favourite topic of conversation and with so many good shows to watch and busy lifestyles getting in the way, most (89%) of people use catch-up services but consequently miss out on all the chatter around the live shows.


So, from today, Freeview has launched a Catch Up Hotline for those missing out on the fun of talking about ‘watercooler’ moments, gripping on-screen action with friends and family, no matter what episode they are on.


The Catch Up Hotline coincides with some seriously big TV moments, including the death of Peggy Mitchell in Eastenders, the finale of Marcella, the new season of Peaky Blinders and the gripping Undercover.
