Union call for fuel increase rejected

  • Comment
NHS Employers has rejected calls for an immediate 5p per mile increase in fuel allowance.

The current rate is 29.7p per mile up to 9,000 miles per year for staff using small cars and 16.2p thereafter, or 36.9p and 20.1p per mile for larger cars.

A spokesperson for NHS Employers said it would wait for the results of an ongoing review of the allowance – due to end in the autumn – before acting.

Unions called for the immediate increase last week to take into account the significant rise in fuel costs.
