Agenda for Change Review

The Shadow Staff Council met on 26th July and received a report on the progress of the review.

The following matters were covered:

Discussion took place on the proposals from the health departments to revise the payment system for unsocial hours and respond to the issues identified from the experience of the early implementer sites. The departments have outlined a payment system that replaces the current wideband prospective structure with a retrospective narrower band process. These proposals will be considered by the Shadow Executive at its next meeting but until agreement is reached on revised unsocial hours payments the review of the proposed agreement cannot be concluded.
