- 2009 Health Care Service Group Conference
- 9 December 2008
This Conference notes that the recruitment and retention premia relating to posts specified in table 19 of Annex R of the Agenda for Change (AfC) Terms and Conditions handbook is applicable for the “transitional period” and that section 18 of Annex R provides for future reviews of the guidance.
Conference calls on the Service Group Executive to:
1.Seek formal confirmation from the NHS staff council of the exact timeline covered by the transitional period.
2.Review the current labour market and the application of the premia to date and consider whether there is a case for specifying in the AfC handbook any additional posts in the NHS that merit application of a recruitment and retention premia under the current arrangements or beyond the transitional period.
