Agreements and payments


NTGPE has an agreement with each participating training post. Agreements are provided to each training post before the commencement of the placement and include details of practice subsidy payment and supervisor in-practice teaching allowances.


Rates are based on the level of the GP registrar. Please see below table:

Payments made to the training posts: 

The practice subsidy is the payment to the training posts as an incentive for taking GP registrar and the teaching allowance is the payment for supervisors for providing the teaching and supervision.

The teaching allowance is linked to the provision of GP supervisor feedback and will be paid on completion and submission of the required feedback. GP supervisor feedback is required at weeks 6, 13 and end of training term except for ARST/AST* and ESP supervisors where the feedback is only required at week 6 and end of term.

Where applicable, both payments will be made together, directly to the training post. 50% of the total amount due for the current term is paid at approximately week 13 of term. The final 50% is paid close to the end of term. Payment will only be made for feedback received.

*ARST and AST placements do not attract a teaching allowance.

Employment of GP registrars:

NTGPE encourages training posts to seriously consider the professional relationship they have with any contracted GP registrar. As an employer would with an employee.

NTGPE expects GP registrars to develop a professional employer-employee relationship with the training post owner or manager beginning with the employment interview.

Training post must adhere to the national terms and conditions for training (NTCER).
