Default Pay Rise???

Hi all

I was looking to get some feedback from practices on whether or not they have given pay rises this year. I know speaking to other practices in the area some are giving 2.25% other a bit more, some are not giving any as yet as there has been no uplift.

What boat are you lot in?

I'm trying to get some ideas.

Whilst on with this.....have any of you adopted agenda for change?????

If you do not want to reply on the forum incase someone see's it who you dont want then please private message me or email me.

Cheers

Hi Simon

This has come up a fair amount lately - understandably. Yes - I heard something about 2.5%. No uplift is a bit rubbish , but we just took a view about our staff and their value to us. We've not adopted Agenda for Change, but nevertheless looked into acceptable pay scales (found one on the internet, another from PCT HR dept). The upshot - we've given our girls 5 - 6 % rises. Guess it'll come down to the partners' attitudes to such business expenses....

Kind regards

Serena

Smile Re: Pay Rise???

we try to b a little selective in the way we structure pay rises. generally we fix a basic level, which this year was 2.5% which we give to everyone. Then on top of this we add other rises for specific members of staff. For instance one member has just completed a dispensing btec, so her rise is 12.5%, as was agreed before she started the course. we have an admin who works on the QOF, and although not agreed prior to her starting the work, we have awarded her 6%.

We also gave a 2.5% rise this year (in line with RPI). We have not adopted everything in AfC, but last year we did look at the main points (hours, pay, leave etc) and made a few changes so that we would be 'competitive' with any other practices - which meant some staff getting quite considerable pay rises last year!

Bottom line is that it depends on how much the partners are prepared to pay. It may not be too much of an issue at present, but as more practices look at AfC and make a few changes you may find it difficult to retain & recruit staff (especially nurses that may well want to get involved in the KSF)

Last year we gave our staff half of the extra holidy entitlement with agenda for change. This year we have assimilated everyone onto the nearest AFC band and applied the full holiday entitlement.

Hi, just joined the site today. We gave our staff the 2.25%pay rise back in May backdated to April for all admin staff. With regard to AfC, our nurses are the only ones who have looked in to AfC, but the GPs are not going down that road, at least not fully. We have adopted part of the AfC payscale band 6, for the old G grade, which goes higher, but our HCAs are already on the old C grade so to put them on AfC would lower their salary. We are not adopting the AfC holiday policy. The GPs only get 6 weeks, why should nurses get more???? Ours feel they are treated very well anyway so hopefully will stay!

Can't afford to even think about Agenda for Change
this year recognised staff efforts (esp in QOF) by giving increase slightly over 3% - can't afford to loose them to neighbouring practices - for the dsame treason the Practice Nurses were given (non-contractual)bonuses unfortunately no uplift in Staffing costs from PCT for 2+ years

We gave all of staff the col rise at 2.5% plus a few that had done some extra work and they were given more.
Also it was agreed this year that we would adopt the afc annual leave BUT we have phased in the extra over 4 years so that it is not too much of a hit at once

We gave everyone 2.5% pay rise dated back to April, and 2 extra days holiday to which the AFC stated, and then wait for one practice in Gwynedd to finish the banding and go on from there.
