All non Senior Paramedics on band 5 (including bank staff) should have now received a letter informing you that your job description has been matched to band 6.
There is no need for you to sign a HR2, as this is a rebanding of your role and not a contractual change to your role.
Everyone will be back paid to 31st December, as per the national agreement (assimilation means moving across to a comparable spine point, or the first spine point in band 6 – and not across and up a spine point).
We were recently made aware of some negative comments aimed at staff uniform by a Director. In response, and in order to better support staff coming into winter, we’re asking the Trust at our Staff Partnership Forum next week, to agree to purchase and issue Keela Munro jackets to all patient facing frontline staff.
