Today it has been announced by the Trust that the collective grievance submitted by Beds, Herts and Cambridgeshire Northampton Pathway Paramedics has been upheld. The hearing should have been held on the 18th August. However due to recent sad circumstances it was decided that Sandy Brown, Director of Nursing and Clinical Quality would review our case., in view of rearranging the hearing. As a result it has been decided that Paramedics from the Northampton Pathway in cohorts 1 and 2 will be allowed to progress to Senior Paramedics role without waiting the 12 month post registration period previously stated. Advancement date will be each persons HCPC Registration date.
The decision was decided up on:
1. Length of Service
2. Previous Experience
3. Previous experience of mentoring
4. Evidence present of active mentoring.
It is a fair decision for both staff and trust alike. It is also good to see that given the right arguments and common sense as well as fair judgement progress can be achieved.
