Price Cap for Locum Doctors

IMPORTANT PLEASE TAKE ACTION ASAP AND RESPOND TO THIS GOVERNMENT "CONSULTATION"!!!!!!

The Government are planning to introduce Price Caps on Agency and NHS Staff Bank shifts Rates from 23 November 2015. We have until Friday 13 November 2015 to respond to their proposals. Please use the link below to read the "Price Caps For Agency Staff Proposed Rules & Consultation" document.  In particular look at the pay charts on pages 17 and 18 showing the full reductions and what doctors’ reduced hourly rates will be under the Agenda For Change pay scales recommended by Monitor (the Government Body putting all this into affect).

Then use the second link below to make your response. If you do nothing you will not have the option to subsidise your earnings by covering NHS Bank shifts or agency work whilst doing research or to pay off your student loan or save a deposit for a house, etc.

From 01 April 2016 you will be paid EXACTLY THE SAME AMOUNT for NHS Staff Bank and Agency shifts per hour as you earn in your permanent post !!!!!!

Corrigan's Door will be lobbying on your behalf with the Recruitment and Employment Confederation. But, please, please, don't leave this. It will have a massive affect on your future potential earnings. Once in place successive Governments are unlikely to change this policy.
