    Nasr v Salisbury Health Care NHS Trust [2000] ET/3102492/99 (0 other reports)

A consultant who was not awarded a discretionary point under the NHS Discretionary Award Scheme was unlawfully discriminated against on grounds of race, as the procedures for awarding points lacked objectivity, holds a Southampton employment tribunal (Chair: S J W Scott) in Nasr v Salisbury Health Care NHS Trust.

Mr Nasr, who is of Egyptian origin, was employed as a consultant in genito-urinary medicine. Consultants employed within the NHS are paid a standard salary, which could be augmented by the award of discretionary points under the discretionary points system, as decided by the discretionary points committee (DPC).
