The English NHS pay deal – in six charts

July saw the implementation of the new NHS pay deal in England, negotiated by UNISON and other unions. The pay deal marked the biggest changes to the NHS pay structure since 2004, when Agenda for Change was introduced. A lot has already been published about the impact on individuals but in this piece we’re going to look at the structure as a whole and how it benefits staff at different stages of their career. Beginnings, journeys and destinations To understand the changes we need to look at the old structure and why trade unions wanted to change it. It is over 13 years since Agenda for Change was introduced. It introduced a pay system in the NHS based on the principle of equal pay for work of equal value. All NHS roles are evaluated and placed on a salary band, from people like porters and health care support workers on bands one and two, to nurses on band five and biomedical scientists, senior clinicians and managers on bands eight and nine. But the pay scales we ended up with were far from perfect. For years, staff complained that it took far too long to reach the full rate of pay for their job, and that some of the pay increments were so small they were meaningless. In addition, big overlaps between pay bands meant that staff on different pay grades could be on the same salary, which was both unfair and a real risk to equal pay. These issues were compounded by nearly eight years of austerity and pay restraint. Pay did not keep pace with the cost of living and NHS sta...

We report a case of a 65-year old Caucasian man with a slow and painful recovery after arthroscopic shoulder surgery encompassing rotator cuff repair, biceps tenotomy and acromioplasty, with recurrence of impingement symptoms unresponsive to conservative therapy (physiotherapy and one sub- acromial injection). He developed a severe heterotopic ossification at the acromial insertion of the deltoid and in the coraco-acromial ligament. This was successfully treated by arthroscopic excision of the lesion and postoperative prophylactic therapy with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. PMID: 32490788 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: On the basis of CIs' and students' self-reports, the piloted practice tutor model was perceived to facilitate students' clinical reasoning and collaborative learning skills. In addition, during the 5-week internship, the number of patients seen each day by the individual CIs and their students was not reduced, with a trend toward increased patient attendance. There was also a trend toward CIs having the same or more time to manage their caseload and work with the students compared with a non-practice tutor internship model. Recommendations to improve this model in future implementations are made. PMID: 32494102 [PubMed]
