Advance letters

Advance letters give details of agreements reached by Whitley Councils and negotiating bodies on terms and conditions of service for the main groups of staff working in the health services. Recent advance letters for each staff group are displayed here. Use the publications and letters library to find earlier ones from 1995. From April 2005, some of these letters will be replaced by circulars issued by NHS Employers
