On-Call Rates

Simon Brooke
Good Morning,

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.

Simon

Hi Simon,

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.

P.S. our Trust decided not to go down the percentage rate route - probably would have cost them too much.

As you probably know, their choices are pay by the hour or pay as a % dependent on frequency of being on-call amongst your team.

We now also get paid for telephone calls/advice which is new!  
Not enough for early retirement by any stretch of the imagination though!

Monday - Friday £17 for a 12 hour period
Saturday, Sunday and bank holidays £19 for a 12 hour period, all pro rata.

Time and half for any callouts, double time if on a bank holiday.  Can claim 30mins for any telephone support.

Thanks for the replies.
Just found out that our Clinical Engineering are on different rates to us so we are challenging it!
