Discussions in relation to medical pay, terms and conditions take place in a number of fora at UK, Scottish, and local level. In relation to the discussions at Scottish level MSG forms the management side in any bi-lateral or multi-lateral pay bargaining events.

Scottish employers also work with SGHD and the other UK Health Departments and employers from across the UK on medical pay issues. In recent years Scottish employers have significantly increased their level of involvement in medical pay issues both at Scottish and overall UK level.
