“Job planning is a professional as well as contractual obligation for consultants and employers. Regular reviews of the efficient and effective use of consultants’ time are critical during a period of rapid change in both medical technology and healthcare delivery systems…. The job planning process should be devised with the local negotiating committee in a spirit of collaboration and mutual respect. It is important to create the right climate by adopting a non-threatening partnership approach rather than a coercive one… The job plan must help achieve service business plans and the trust’s organisational objectives” Consultant job planning: a best practice guide, NHS Improvement 2017

“The BMA strongly supports effective job planning as an appropriate tool to improve organisational performance and ensure that consultants are given appropriate resources to do their jobs effectively.” Dr David Scott, Consultant Paediatrician & Clinical Lead for Children and Young People’s Services, East Sussex Hospital NHS Trust

“Job planning is not just about agreeing a weekly timetable - it can be used to drive improvements in patient care.” British Medical Association
