Connecting clinical expertise to patient care

NHS Emeritus is an initiative which connects recently retired and peri-retired clinicians across England, with NHS providers of acute care who need the help only experienced clinicians can offer. NHS Emeritus enables providers to engage clinicians for activities such as outpatient planned care, teaching and education.

Whilst recognising that much activity will be in-person, NHS Emeritus aims to make optimal use of technology, enabling clinicians to also deliver care remotely, when clinically appropriate. In this way, members of NHS Emeritus can work flexibly, fitting in as much or as little as they would like to, around their other interests and commitments.

Consultants and Specialty and Associate Specialist (SAS) doctors are eligible to participate as long as they are on the medical register of the General Medical Council (GMC) and hold a licence to practice. Consultants must also be on the specialist register.
