Gale v Northern General Hospital NHS Trust [1994] IRLR 292 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Continuity of employment: No continuity for student nurse

    Date:
    1 June 1994

    A student nurse who could be asked to undertake his clinical experience at any hospital in a wide area, could not show that he was employed to work solely at the hospital to which he was allocated for the latter part of his training. As a result, he could not establish that his employment transferred to that hospital when it became an NHS trust, the Court of Appeal confirms in Gale v Northern General Hospital NHS Trust.
