The NHS pay deal – a letter to the Secretary of State from our Chair, Antony Kildare



The NHS pay deal – a letter to the Secretary of State from our Chair, Antony Kildare

As it stands, the current NHS pay deal will only be funded for NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts. As a social enterprise, delivering NHS services in Medway and beyond, we provide NHS services and follow the NHS pay framework, Agenda for Change, offering the same terms and conditions as our peers in NHS Trusts. 

We, along with other social enterprises, are represented on the employer’s side of the NHS Staff Council. We expected to be treated in an equal manner to our colleagues and automatically receive an uplift to funding via contracts with commissioners, alongside all other providers of NHS contracts. We are extremely concerned at the proposed funding route for the pay deal.  

As a result, our Chair, Antony Kildare, wrote to Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care. Please see our letter here.
