Trusts say they want to 'reform' not replace Agenda for Change

Comment

i was in at the beginning of Agenda for change and worked for two years on bandings. the questionnaire and the computer system that worked alongside were supposed to be fail safe and fair. depending on who was inputting it could be swayed to suggest a higher banding.!!! Everyone wanted to be a specialist in their field hoping for a higher band, in fact most came under 'interest in a specialty' no real evidence that they were. you have part time staff on band 7 and 8 what a nonsense. Trusts had the choice at the very beginning to change locally things like unsocial hours etc they were too lazy to put measures into place. whoever had the bright idea to think up Agenda for Change had to know it was going to cost a lot of money , the Whitley Scale though old was fairer especially when you still had Enrolled nurses, now everyone is on band 5. Enrolled nurses are worth every penny but there are still some things they cannot do. What a blunder this scheme was in reality.
