Historically University of Cambridge employed Allied Health Professionals were issued standard contracts along with Honorary Research Contracts as appropriate. From October 2019, new Allied Health Professionals receive joint (co-terminous) employment contracts. This means these posts are an integrated appointment between the University and the relevant NHS Trust. The individual will also be issued with an Honorary Clinical Contract by the NHS Trust. If the contract with the NHS Trust is terminated the employment with the University will be terminated, and vice versa.
Note: Honorary Research Contracts do not constitute a contract of employment. Further details about Honorary Research Contracts can be found here.
All University employed Research Nurses, Research Midwives and Allied Health Professionals can only be issued a University contract when they have an Honorary Research Contract or Letter of Access in place with the relevant NHS Trust. Both the University contract and the Honorary Research Contract will be issued together.
Allied Health Professional contract queries should be raised with the relevant departmental HR Team in the first instance. For advice from the Clinical School HR Team, contact the Medical Staffing Coordinator via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Allied Health Professional posts are funded by various different funding sources including research grants and charitable donations.
