What is an Medical Honorary Contract?
A Medical Honorary Contract is the mechanism by which a NHS/University employee can access Cardiff & Vale UHB facilities and information, whether that be for work, research or training, when they are not employed directly by the relevant Cardiff & Vale UHB. An Honorary Contract is not an employment contract and in no way implies an employer-employee relationship between the clinicians and Cardiff & Vale UHB.
Honorary Contracts are issued to NHS employees who typically require;
- access to NHS patients and/or
- access to NHS premises and/or
- access to NHS patient data, tissues or organs and/or
- will have a direct impact on patient care.
An individual MUST NOT commence any activities within the Cardiff & Vale UHB until all employment checks have been completed & honorary contract is issued.
