Are any NHS Techs still being paid per session for on-call?
Our Trust didn’t transfer us onto the AfC percentage rates and our on call payments haven’t changed for many years.
We receive £11.52 weekdays, £17.21 weekends and £23.11 bank holidays.
Is this comparable with other Trusts?
I’d be grateful if anyone is willing to share their on-call rates, if different to ours.
I have just been through this at our Trust. We too were on Whitley Council rules until around Feb of this year.
Turned out our Trust had negotiated a new on-call payment policy with the Union etc 2 years earlier but we had been forgotten about!
We are no longer paid by sessions but by the hour. Whenever the workshop is closed then the on-call is active. We do 100 hours a week on call. You get more for weekends and BH per hour of course.
If you want me to send you a copy of our policy then just send me an email.
