EAT decision re GP's employment status - Community Based Care Health Ltd v Narayan [EAT] 02.09.19 (Unreported)

Thu, 05 Sep 2019

A GP registered with a company providing out-of-hours medical services to the NHS, who had worked regular shifts at a single establishment for around 12 years, had been correctly characterised as a "worker" within the Employment Rights Act 1996 s.230(3)(b) where there was no mutuality of obligation and where she provided her services through a limited company. Out-of-hours GPs had to satisfy strict qualification and performance requirements imposed by the NHS nationally. A company, not being human, or a doctor, or capable of exercising medical judgement, could not satisfy those requirements.
