Have you ever received a bonus to celebrate your contribution to your trust’s success

Have you ever received a bonus to celebrate your contribution to your trust’s success?

‘Yes. This year all Wandsworth PCT employees have received an extra eight-hour day of annual leave to thank us all for contributing to the financial turnaround of the organisation, which has gone from deficit to surplus in two years’

Paul Cornforth, consultant nurse, unscheduled care, Wandsworth Teaching PCT, London

‘Harlow PCT (now West Essex) used to have awards for staff – Christmas hampers, theatre tickets, shopping trips to France. I got a personal digital radio and diamond earrings’

Maria Gough, senior nurse practitioner, Harlow NHS Walk-in Centre

‘I have never received a bonus from the NHS. However, I have received bonuses for work in the private sector, which made me feel valued and was a good boost to morale’

Joy Milligan, practice nurse, Hampshire

‘Surely excellence is what we should all be striving for? What are the cost implications? If patient care budgets are being spent in this way, it is of concern’

Sue Daniel, designated nurse for looked after children, Southampton
