Pay threat from trust restructure

  • Comment
Nurses and support staff at a Midlands hospital trust could see their pay cut under workforce restructuring proposals, unions have warned.
Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust intends to restructure to pay off debts of £40m in the next three years.
It is also in the process of moving to a new site.
According to Unison, the plans could result in up to 100 staff being put on lower pay bands.
In the worst cases, where specialist nurses could fall from being employed on band seven to band six, this will result in pay cuts of up to £10,000 when unsocial hours payments are included, the union said.
In a joint statement, the hospital, Unison and the RCN said they had ‘agreed to work together over the next three weeks to explore the issues raised by the current workforce restructuring proposals’.
