Medical Honorary Contracts

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.
