Call for views on maintenance staff recruitment

NHS organisations have been asked to help create an up to date report on the recruitment and retention of maintenance staff. 

NHS Employers is asking NHS organisations to complete a short questionnaire, which will help provide a picture of the local situation. 

Following an Employment Tribunal test case the NHS Staff Council was instructed to review national recruitment and retention premiums (RRPs) or they would “cease to have effect”. 

A joint review into the situation, back in 2010, agreed that national RRPs would be phased out on 1 April 2013, unless a Staff Council review could show that national RRPs are needed. 

A statement from NHS Employers said the questionnaire will “provide us with information which cannot be obtained from national datasets”.

The survey is available on the NHS Employers website
