Craig,

In general your principle is correct, but there are some circumstances
in which fee paying work can be undertaken in NHS time. It depends on
the contract that the consultant holds. The BMA website is a good source
of advice:
http://www.bma.org.uk/ap.nsf/Content/feesparttimemed~hospitaldoctors

The bottom line is that there needs to be a clear agreement between the
consultants within an ED and with the Trust as to how 'Category 2' type
work is going to be undertaken. Unhappiness is only the result if there
is lack of clarity or lack of equity between colleagues.

Tim. Coats.

How can this be an issue.

Income going to Dept or trust = Work hours.

Income going to Consultant directly = Own time.

Surely no one is actually employed to do private income generating work
on NHS time.

I would value assistance in benchmarking how other people organise
medicolegal work to obviate or at least minimise tensions between
colleagues- some who do do it and some who do not?I am about to go to
advert for two more consultants and I want to avoid applicants from
undertaking medicolegal work without some robust line in the sand of
acceptability.
1.which of the following do you agree with:
medicolegal work (that aspect pertaining to income generating work from
solicitors to see patients and do reports) should be done
a) off site and in own doctors time
b) on site but after hours
c) on site but in SPA time and limited to 2 patients only per week
d) on site, in SPA, no finite limit to number of patients at all

Thank you for your help on this topic.Am I right in thinking this is one
of the top three sources of tension between consultants in Emergency
medicine?
