Notes

This field must be returned for staff holding an academic teaching and/or research contract with open ended/permanent or fixed-terms of employment. In addition, the contract must be assigned to one of the following HESA cost centre activities: Clinical medicine; Clinical dentistry; Nursing & allied health professions; Psychology & behavioural sciences; Health & community studies; Anatomy & physiology; Pharmacy & pharmacology; Sports science & leisure studies; Biosciences; Anthropology & development studies or Social work & social policy.

It is a requirement that NHS contracts (Contract.NHSCON) are returned for contracts with clinical academic status (Contract.CLINICAL coded either 1 'Clinical academic doctors and dentists', 2 'Clinical academic nurses and midwives' or 3 'Clinical academic health professions'). Consequently, clinical academic status can only be returned in Contract.CLINICAL if the member of staff holds an NHS contract (or NHS honorary contract) with an NHS Trust (or equivalent Public Health England for Public Health Academics, Local Authorities for Academic GPs or primary/community healthcare contract).

Code 1 'Clinical academic doctors and dentists' can only be used when Person.REGBODY is coded either 01 'General Medical Council (GMC)' or 02 'General Dental Council (GDC)', and staff should normally be undertaking clinical duties in addition to academic duties (Contract.ACEMPFUN of 1, 2 or 3). Doctors and dentists who, as part of their specialty medical/dental training, are undertaking a period of dedicated research are, however, also covered.

Code 2 'Clinical academic nurses and midwives' can only be used when Person.REGBODY is coded 06 'The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)' and staff should normally be undertaking clinical duties in addition to academic duties (Contract.ACEMPFUN of 1, 2 or 3).

Code 3 'Clinical academic health professions' can only be used when Person.REGBODY is coded 07 'Health Professions Council (HPC)' and staff should normally be undertaking clinical duties in addition to academic duties (Contract.ACEMPFUN of 1, 2 or 3).

Professionals registered with the HPC (Person.REGBODY = 07) are:

  • Art therapists
  • Biomedical scientists
  • Chiropodists/Podiatrists

  • Dieticians
  • Occupational therapists
  • Operating department practitioners
  • Orthoptists
