Action to address rising fuel costs

  • Comment
Nursing unions are studying computer records to ascertain how much money community nurses are having to spend on fuel in the course of their work.

Staff side organisations, including the RCN and Unison, are gathering data from the electronic staff record so they can make proposals for a revised mileage claims system for NHS staff.

Rising fuel prices have prompted the unions to take action amid claims that the current mileage allowance is not covering increased costs of motoring (NT News, 10 June, p5).

A Unison spokesperson said: ‘We have got to understand what the impact of rising fuel costs have been in relation to current mileage allowance payments.’

A new set of proposals will be put to NHS Employers at an NHS staff council meeting, scheduled for next month.
