IMO to ballot consultant and NCHD members on new contract

By David Lynch - 02nd Mar 2023


The IMO will ballot its consultant and NCHD members on the new consultant contract; however, the Organisation will not be making a recommendation on the vote, the Medical Independent (MI) has learned.  

In a message sent today to members, the IMO encouraged all consultants and NCHDs to vote before the deadline next Tuesday (7 March). The ballot will be conducted online.

“Following receipt of final documents, incorporating the Department’s responses to the clarifications we sought, the IMO will now commence a ballot of members on the terms of the new consultant contract,” the Organisation stated in the message.

“Ballots will issue to all consultants and NCHDs as future consultants. This will be an online ballot.”

The IMO said that the ballot will close on Tuesday, 7 March at 5pm, “following which we will advise the Minister for Health as to the outcome.”

“We encourage all members to vote; however, the IMO consultant committee will not be making a recommendation in this regard given the contract was not an agreed document and recognising that each current contract holder will need to make an individual decision based on a number of factors.”
